This is what Mario told me and what I not really forgot.  What I wanted
to say is that you can even present a list of recommendations to enable
the user selecting from this list (perhaps enhanced by a short
explanation of the options to choose from).  It seems perfectly doable
in a debconf script to tell the user that the metapackage will install
screen readers A, B and C with the features ... and he has to select one
of them which will be activated later.  To switch to a different
screenreader dpkg-reconfigure could be used.

Giving the user an educated advise is actually is a decision.

Kind regards
