You mean RC1, or the daily build at that time?

Cool, thanks :)

That would prevent from creating a user named "hilfe" etc. That's why
shortcuts are used.  It is known that they are not spoken, see bug
#690343.  I've tried to patch espeak in order to do it but it wasn't so
simple, I didn't have time to finish that.

I believe this is already done: after partitioning & formatting,
"Installieren des Grundsystems" is already be spoken, and percentage
progress is given about every 10%.

I've seen my own students not knowing that pressing enter takes the
default, I guess the wording could be changed from

Prompt: '%c' for help, default=%d>


Prompt: '%c' for help, press enter to choose the default %d (%s)> 

What d-b people think?

That could perhaps make its way for 7.0.1.
