Debian installers.

Did you find the instructions for an accessible debian install?  I 
switched to ubuntu about 6 months ago and I have not installed debian 
jessie. But I think all you have to do is keep pressing the s key as it 
boots. When I was using debian, I did several installs a week and I 
learned that the timing isn't critical.  You can just keep pressing the 
s  key until it starts talking. Of course, you have to have a working 
sound card and speakers for it to work.
