Bug#678065: debian-cd: Include brltty and espeakup in netinst

Package: debian-cd
Version: 3.1.8
Severity: wishlist


Currently, the netinst images do not contain brltty and espeakup. This
means that blind users who install Debian without a network mirror end
up with an unusable installed system, lacking brltty and espeakup to
show braille or talk to them. brltty was explicitly removed in version
3.1.0 because it pulls libicu, resulting to 5MiB increase. The rationale
was that it was not deemed the size for the little userbase. Some blind
users have complained about espeakup, which is about the same story
(pulling espeak etc.), so I'm recording the request here, in case that
could be reconsidered.
