I have several pages of braille notes on installing arch and no that's
not the only proper installation documentation either.  There's a
beginner's installation guide which is far more detailed and that served
as some of the source for the notes I made.  As a result I've had a very
good command line install running for several past kernel versions and
the screen reader was running before this last update.
