Subject: Support for the blind user running Linux (fwd)


The following came my way (and can only be the result of an email
conversation I had with someone about 18 months ago ... talk about
chickens coming home to roost).

Anyway, I am forwarding it because it's clearly a worthy cause, and there
might just be someone out there interested in getting involved who would
not otherwise have heard of this list.

Best wishes to all,
Ted. (
