According to "Δημήτρης Ζέρβας":
#PS: WOW man, how can you even install Arch by being visually
#You must be GENIUS!!!!

Lol I use Chris Brannon's Talking Arch install media.
I stand on the shoulders of giants. :)

 #PS2: I'm not trying to say ANYTHING bad about you and I'm sorry, if I
#offended you, I just think that it's very difficult...

No more difficult than it is for anyone else. I have speech using Speakup and the eSpeak speech synthesizer as soon as the install media boots. If I get this thing to the point where I can install a desktop environment, likely either GNOME or LXDE, I'll be able to get speech using the same eSpeak speech synthesizer and a screen reader called Orca. No, I'm not offended at all, and I am actually trying to let the world know just how easy it can be to install a Linux system without eyes. In this case, questions are a good thing(tm). Hope this helps.

I'll try this install with a 100MB ext2 /boot, although GRUB isn't supposed to need this extra partition. Maybe I found a bug in GRUB's BTRFS module.
