I fully agree. 

On wiki.debian.org/accessibility, I noted that there are a lot of information for developpers. It's a very good thing. Through the various talks, meetings and experiences I have today, I see that users especially want doc and think, and I believe they're right, there isn't enouge user guides about enabling accessibility features on Debian and what exists. So Jason you're right!
That's why I wonder if we couldn't create on the existing page a part for user-documentation. It would explain for instance the role of brltty, xbrlapi, orca, the big-picture of accessibility, the installer and accessibility, etc etc. I can help on this, and every user could help us and document this. It's essential for the future I think, as doc isn't enough today, user is often confused in accessibility world on Free software. So Debian could be a great point of begininng.

What do you think of this?
