Yes. There are instances when a blind person might need to type something at the boot prompt, say, to configure brltty if we eventually put it on the livecd eventually, look at http://www.mielke.cc/brltty/guidelines.html for an example of this. The current brltty will not be ready to go stable for this release, but it is something I would like to have considered for future releases.
