Re: Bug#1002976: installation-reports: Installer Does Not Provide Screen Reader in Accessible Installation
Missing from this is the information that:
The mini.iso that Samuel provided did not produce sound, unfortunately, I could not access Internet with this iso as I needed firmware to do so.
Samuel said that he had the files he needed, and that ALSA might be working on a fix.
As I understand it, I need to install files from the Internet to have a working system that is capable of furnishing logs. I'm willing to try again, but I have no Ethernet where I live, we have collective WiFi in this location and the WiFi needs firmware.
Please read this e-mail to the bottom, in particular, Samuel's answer.
