I commend you Jude for your shear moxie in getting a Linux distro up and
running which is no small task for people with 20/20 vision. And the setup from
Chris, I'll have to check that out. Just thinking out what that would entail,
from the initial boot, the install and finally to a running OS without the sight
sense, that is nothing short of incredible. How do you do it?
Seriously, what tools are available that, I guess in some sense, must speak the
prompts so you know what's going on? Just curious more than anything else.
The only thing I can think of is some type of modification to the prompt that
would process the prompt though an OCR utility and then to a text-to-speech app,
but what about before that setup is installed? That's pretty amazing and sounds
like some cool technology.
Best of luck and if you need any help, just ask -- or type. (although by the
sound of it, I may be the one asking you for help).
