Subject: [gentoo-accessibility] gentoo 10.0 x86 test live dvd available
Date: Thu, 10 Sep 2009 17:05:38
Message-Id: 20090910170536.GA3217@linux1

there is now a live dvd available for testing for x86 with espeak
and speakup on it so we can install using speech [1].  Also, brltty is
included if you have a braille display.

The startup procedure is still the same.  Wait for the beep to let you
know you are at the boot prompt, then type something like this to bring
up speech:  gentoo speakup.synth=synthname, or, something like this to
bring up brltty: gentoo brltty=something.

Remember that before you reboot into the newly installed system, you
will have to install accessibility software into it since the software
running is only on the dvd.

Again, if you find any issues with this dvd, open bugs on and have them block bug 281827.

Any help testing would be appreciated.
