Hi there,
As far as i know Gnome is really the only graphical environment with a screen reader.  And even this is not quite at version 1.0.

Oralux 0.6 will work with brail and dectalk and will come with yasr.  Although this distro runs from cd.
I am not sure how long it will be before 0.6 is released though.

for more info.

Hope this helps,

  Subject: what distro can I install with braille lite 18?

      Hi friends, I've being reading many things about linux and I want to give it a try. So, if  some one could answer the questions below I'd be happy.
  1)- What distro can be installed with braille lite 18? Some time ago I ran the zipspeak but it is a dos based distro.
  2)- I know that there are distros that come with speakup. But as far as I know speakup doesn't use viavoice as a synthesizer. I prefer the viavoice instead braille lite. So, if I install a distro with speakup, will I be able to install viavoice and yasr and uninstall speakup?
  3)- I heard that a system running speakup will not be able to run gnopernicus. Is it true? Does some one use speakup and gnopernicus?
  4)- I know there are many graphical environments to linux (KDE, gnome, xwindows). Can I have one screen reader for each environment?
