Disability Help
« on: November 29, 2017, 02:29:58 pm »
We need your help, so all you Linux people out there that may know of or could suggest of any software that would help or assist the Partially  sighted and or Blind persons to use a PC or even add-ons  to the Browsers for Firefox (bearing in mind the update to 57) and Chromium and Google Chrome. We will mainly be using Linux Mint Cinnamon all on 64 bit PC or some laptops. You may be a developer who would like to test some software for our needs well I find someone to test this for you.
But you must remember that it cannot be complicated it's for new users with additional issues just remember the first time you use Linux and how you throw your dummy out out because you couldn’t get it to work.

Claus Knopper, who made Knoppix, also made Adriane for his girlfriend who was partially sighted or blind.

Another possibility is Vinux a dedicated distro.

Then there are the mainstream distros that might need to be customized.

You might look at https://opensource.com/life/15/8/accessibility-linux-blind-disabled . (Sonar has been discontinued...)
