For your info: "An Open Letter to Oracle on the Topic Of Accessibility" by Joanmarie Diggs, Assistive Technology Specialist and Gnome Orca contributor.
The Oralux.org Association's objective is to foster digital accessibility using solutions based upon Free Software and open standards.
A few proprietary softwares can be also proposed.
The Association has fostered the growth of the Oralux project (2003 - 2006). The Oralux Live CD is no more developed, major distributions such as Ubuntu offer today an accessible environment for the visually impaired users.
The Association proposes Voxin, an easily installable add-on which provides yet another text-to-speech to blind users of GNU/Linux.
Other independent projects are wished:
- softwares for talking PDA or Smartphone,
- web services easing access to information,
