parsix accessibility for blind and visually impaired.

Postby Hadi » Thu Apr 25, 2013 2:56 pm

Hello,
I wanted to know that does parsix have accessibility options at installation like debian 7?
Just for your information, a speech-software feedback will let blind users to work with the operating system.
in debian 7, (the os itself) the accessibility options will activate if the user presses "s" then enter at the boot screen, and the installation will come up talking with a speech synthesis. after OS finishes the installation, and gnome comes up, the package called (gnome-orca) will be activated, which is a full-featured screenreader for gnome, allowing us visually impaireds to navigate around with a keyboard and basicly use the OS.

I have not downloaded parsix yet, and i'm running on a low-speed internet connection, thus i'm asking before getting onto downloading it.
InFact if parsix is not accessible at all, is it possible to add those features for us? i will provide more information if needed. you can check the debian accessibility wiki to gather some info.

Thanks alot!

cheers from iran

gnome-orca screenreader

google searches and articles shows that many users are happy with parsix being stable and speedy, so it'd be awesome that it also could be usable by us too :)
once again, i'd be happy to help with anything or putting up more info.

Thanks for reading
Hadi
