This is some good ideas on what to shoot for next. Hi Tom, I use festival with mutt to pipe my email to the speakers so I can hear it (just my lazyness, but if I couln't read it or had difficulty, itd help). Also, on Gnome, I use the 'high contrast' theme, as some folks have color blindness (not me though). There is also a 'visual bell' option for most WM's (flashes the screen). Knoppix has options for using brltty's. There is also the 'keyboard' mouse options. there are a few onscreen keyboards - gok for gnome. I used it once when I had a keyboard problem in X. Maybe checkout the debian mailing list for accessibility! HTH -Kev -- counter.li.org #238656 -- goto counter.li.org and be counted!
