Hi Eric,

I'm not sure how things are at present, but in the past,
Debian has shown some commitment to supporting
accessibility[1], including at the installer level[2].

This is not the same as a special-purpose distribution, and
I think the pages were written some time ago. Still I would
think that some effort would be worthwhile, and would
benefit all Debian derivatives, which could include
a accessbility-centric distribution.
