In that case you might try: The iso is a 
live disk, and you put it in the dvd holder and boot the computer 
preferably with sighted assistance present for the first time.  Either 
they or the sound card will be able to tell you if you've succeeded or 
not.  A podcast on archlinux by Jeff Whapples is available for download 
and you'll need to take some notes from it before doing the installation. 
A few additional things need doing for an accessible install like editing 
of certain files and the like.On Tue, 21 Sep 2010, Brian Olesen wrote:
