accessible ubuntu installer

The install from the desktop is not accessible.  I assume it is because orca
should run as su, and you need to invoke the install from the command line
to get a text interface, or whatever the reason.
You need to run the gnome-terminal, change to sudo su, stop orca, restart it
so it runs as su, and start the install from the command line.  From there
it's fairly straight forward.

If you Google for accessible install ubuntu, you should find the page with
detailed information.

Subject: accessible ubuntu installer

Good afternoon,

I am wanting to dual boot debian and ubuntu so I can try out ubuntu before
making a choice on what distro to go for. I was just wondering if the
installer is accessible on the livecd. I think you can double click an
install icon on your desktop and it takes you through the installation
process. Is this accessible with BRLTTY or orca?

Is it very complicated to dual boot two linux distroes?
And then could I add a 3rd os to my system "fedora" so I can try them all
out. Then remove the stuff I don't want once I give everything ago?
