Re: Debian potential user, a question or two

Thanks for the tips, y'all. I got Debian installed, which was a joy to do. I used the net installer for the 64-bit version. I installed in VmWare, and it all went pretty good until I restarted. After the beep, I pressed s, but then, using an OCR addon for NVDA, I learned that the log in screen had come up, there was no speech. I got into a console, no speech there either, made sure the volume was up by piping output of commands to eSpeak, and made sure Orca was installed as well. Any ideas?

That's completely unexpected and hasn't been reported to my
knowledge. Levels are supposed to be put at 80%, just like they are at
reboot in the installed system. Please report debugging information as
documented on

Also note that as documented in the installer manual in the
accessibility chapter
(https://d-i.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch05s02.html) you can make the
volume louder by pressing Capslock+2
