just how much can you do with?

Sounds like it may be a great contribution.  Do you intend to create the
audio working from a written document?  If so, would that be available?  I
ask because I usually work much better with written things than audio ones,
even if it comes to me by Orca's or JAWS's chirping.  :-)

I am going to start on an audio archive in the near future.  I will cover as
much as is possible from installing and configuring the entire system to
installing and configuring apps, to using Linux for many of the practical
computing tasks the average user will have.  

My National Federation of the Blind state president wants me to do this so
that we can introduce this to the blind population here in the U.S. most of
whom have never heard of Linux.  

As soon as I can find a machine to install on, I hope to start this archive.
I want to talk about what gnu/Linux is and how it is different from the
alternative.  I want to walk you through an install of at least 1 distro or
even more, I want to show how the user can complete many of the tasks we
have just discussed on here, including mail, web, media, and more, if
desired, even programming, although that will be most likely a separate
archive since most people avoid coding like the plague.  

As soon as I get a draft of this together, I will find out how to distribute
it and will be getting it out as soon as I either build a web site or set up
a mailing list somewhere.  

I'll be in touch soon, I hope.
