OK, but why do we, as a community, need a special distro? Yes, it's free
software, so there is certainly nothing stopping you as long as you realize
it's your pet distro along with the about 300 others on distrowatch.com. I
would much rather have a popular, mainstream distro which includes great
accessibility like Debian and derivatives.

Yes, Debian still supports accessibility. Every alpha release of D-I has
accessibility features and fixes.

These pages should be fairly current and are often updated by Debian
developers like Samuel Thibault.
