Problem with speech-synthesis option at install

Hi,
I don't need Assistive Technology but because it is an area I work in/with, I wanted to see how well (or otherwise) it would go during a reinstallation. It picked up the Sound Blaster Audigy Rx fine at the start but after that the option for languages meant you could not see the top half of the screen as only 2 columns - if you have ever used a system rescue disc or other minimal distro - the language choices are spread over 5 columns in a terminal window - something to consider. As from memory 40 = UK/en-GB I entered that and then got a screen full of white squares with only a few options in actual readable text - looked at the bug report but not sure where it should go.

Info from the devuan.org download page:

The minimal-live.iso  (~460 MB) is a full-featured, console-based recovery tool with a focus on accessibility for visually-impaired and blind users. Uses the refractainstaller.

Give that a spin.

Thanks for the information. Will Devuan "Beowulf" get an update for non-sighted users?

Re: Problem with speech-synthesis option at install

That would depend on your definition of an "update for non-sighted users".  There will be a point release in the near future.  I suggest that you take your questions to the DNG mail list as there are non-sighted users there who can better answer your questions.
