Any suggestions of what distro of Linux I should load onto a new computer?

I would recommend Fedora. It's mainstream, runs up-to-date programs, and
doesn't depend on one developer. To start Orca, just press Alt + Windows +
S. I would also go with the Fedora Mate spin, as Mate is, in my opinion, a
bit more accessible than Gnome. Do enable Assistive Technology support
after you install it.
Now, Accessible Coconut is good system, but it is very out of date. For a
learning system, that may be okay, except your school may require newer
packages. Do you know what distribution of Linux they're going to be using?
There is also Slint, at:
But I would not call it newbie friendly, and I've had sound issues with it
the one time I tried it.
So yeah there really kinda isn't that much for blind beginner Linux users
right now. But I'd take a mainstream, well-developed distribution with
up-to-date packages any day over an out-of-date Ubuntu release.
