Re: Oralux (fwd)



Also, apparently there is no braille output. this is a bit of 
short-sightedness that is surprising in a product that is supposed to be 
specifically for access by blind people. In addition, there is already a 
Linux minidistribution to help blind people get started that has both 
speech and braille output - BrlSpeak. Finally, do blind people really need 
a special distribution just because they are blind. I'm sticking with 
redhat, and I bet my Debian friends will stick with Debian.
