Re: Debian Installer Bullseye RC 1 release

Yesterday I installed both the firmware and official versions of this
release.  In both versions speech was used to do the installs.  The
firmware version had no accessibility after install but the official
version had accessibility after installation.  When this thread came up, I
got curious so decided to check this out.

I don't have braille here for the computer yet so can't test with that.
