Re: Making the access floppy work.

the floppies use a speakup-kernel, I'm not sure if you need a special
boot-var as is used for brltty.

No their are no cd-images as of yet with access-support.
I made one myself but only with brltty.

You need to build a custrom-kernel to get that support on a cd.
