I’ve read there is orca support when the system is installed. Also brltty seems to be available as a package. But the problem is the installation. As far as I can see there is no support for braille or speech and a unattended installation requires a tool which is only available when you pay for a subscription.

Yes, thats right. I was just curious if we can install RHEL without sighted assistance which would be nice.

Can Fedora be installed without sighted assistance? If yes, how?
I need RHEL because I have to learn to use some tools running on it, puppet, foreman, e.g. In my job I will use this tools via CLI and I will ssh to the servers, so no problem, but currently I’d like to build an own little environment to play around with the new tools.
Maybe Fedora would a good solution as long as I can setup my own little playground without asking for sighted help all the time…
