The problems we have right now are sufficiently sever to be
showstoppers. At the SpeakupModified.Org we recommend disabling
pulseaudio. As things stand in F-9, one gets no audio until after a user
logs in on the GUI. So, how are those who need screen reader support
supposed to use the a11y features of GDM? As it stands, there seems no
way to get console audio without that GUI login. Also a nonstarter in
the screen reader user community.

If you want to run terminal applications, can't you just log in to a
full screen gnome-terminal?

It seems a useful initial step toward resolution is to run pulseaudio
as a system daemon, via an init script, /sbin/service, /sbin/chkconfig.
The trade-offs vs the per user model that F-9 employs are probably more
than acceptable to most a11y users.

So, let me simply ask ... Has anyone a working init script for
pulseaudio as a system daemon? Anything close that we could continue to
refine as an alternative configuration option for Fedora?

We're going to be removing the legacy non-X system consoles by default
in the long run.

Aside from the fact that this little nugget derailed the thread due to the many people (rightly*, IMO) freaking out, I fail to see where any part of your message to which I am replying was of any relevance whatsoever to this thread. PA as a system daemon should work (or, perhaps, not work) regardless of what happens to "non-X system consoles" in the future. Nor do I even see where Janina said *anything* about them, or even about consoles or the CLI in general.

Did I miss something?

(*...though you still haven't answered if you really want to kill non-X consoles or just hide them really well, which would have avoided all that.)
