I doubt it. BeOs as it was, is dead and burried. There is a new project 
that is under active development to re-create BeOs, I think its known as 
Haycu or some such. They haven't put out their first release yet, and 
are not adding anything new to feature wise. Once they have re-created 
BeOS from scratch, they will add new features.

When this time comes, some of us can lobby them to implement things like 
atk/at-spi for the GUI, and get some existing screen readers hopefully 

Have you looked at any radio packages under Linux?

Hpoe this helps.
