Dear All

I'm working on a local community project in conjunction with a specialist IT
and Internet training charity U CAN DO I.T, who provide low cost training to
individuals with visual impairments, hard of hearing or who are physically
disabled. Our role here at REALISE I.T is to provide refurbished PC's free
of charge to these individuals within our project area (four London

U CAN DO I.T trainers currently work with JAWS; Hal; Windows Eyes and Super
Nova. I'm investigating Open Source software as an alternative to Microsoft
to lower the software costs to these individuals. As far as I know the above
software is not compatible with Linux. 

I was hoping that someone might be able to give me their opinions of open
source alternatives - preferably compatible with Linux?
What is out there and how do you rate it? 

It would be really helpful to get any advice. I look forward to hearing all
your opinions shortly
Kind regards

Jo Foster
