Good news: you're not the only blind Linux user on this list. If
it helps, the installer has support for braille terminals and speech

Yes. You want to copy the first DVD image only, to the raw disk.

If you were starting from another UNIX machine, you might be
doing something like:

dd if=Debian_image.iso  of=/dev/sdc

Where /dev/sdc indicates the unpartitioned destination disk, not
a partition on it (which would be sdc1 or sdc2 ...)
