FreeBSD accessibility?

Tim here. It depends on the hardware you have. It can be booted with
a serial console, so if you have a Braille terminal or hardware that
presents as a serial port, you can make a modified installer image
that will do the entire install over the serial port as described here

I've asked Devin Teske (the maintainer of the installer) whether the
entire installer is TUI/curses-based or if there's a more linear way
of doing it.  If I hear back, I'll follow-up here.

I know the *Open*BSD installer is very linear and is quite accessible
with the dumbest of serial consoles.

Once installed, at least the console should be pretty accessible.  I
haven't kicked the tires on the GUI with Orca yet.
