We are very happy to announce that accessibility features have been added to our installation medium with [archiso v49](https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/archiso/-/tags/v49).
>From release 2020.11.01 onward these are available via the 2nd boot loader
menu item. A [specific installation guide](https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Install_Arch_Linux_with_accessibility_options) can be found on the wiki.

Many thanks go to Alexander Epaneshnikov who integrated the features from the [TalkingArch](https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/TalkingArch) project into archiso's releng profile, which is used for creating the installation medium.

Note: The boot loader timeouts have been set to 15s to allow blind users to select the menu item as the boot loaders themselves do not offer accessibility features.
