There's much to be said in favour of starting small, as you suggest, and
then installing exactly the packages you want.

Linux has provided non-visually accessible installation procedures for
longer than any of the proprietary systems, as well as screen readers
(and other accessibility tools) as part of the operating system
distribution. That's an achivement which isn't sufficiently recognized.
Debian is a major part of that story.
