I just gave live-helper a whirl and found that there is already some
accessibility support (in live-initramfs):

This file implements the following:
 * Enabling the accessibility GNOME gconf key if necessary.
 * Preconfiguring .orca with a few settings.

However, this script seems like it was either never really finished
or fell victim to some bitrod:  The case statement checks for
values that are never present.  The prefix (access=) needs to
be removed since its already being removed in the "live" initramfs script.

The "braille=ask" case seems ad hoc and doesnt make sense to me.

In general, the approach seems sound, we just need to define
a few more "levels".  I.e., currently there is no
access level for braille and speech enabled AFAICS.
