Linux for blind general discussion blinux-list at redhat.com

I had no trouble searching for the orca package on the Void Linux 
website. It shows me that version 42.3 revision 1 is available. I was 
not however able to determine whether it ships on the install media, or 
what text-mode screen reader may be on the downloaded install media if 
no desktop starts by default. This may still need to be determined using 
a virtual machine. I do know that one or more blind people use Void 
Linux; I thought there were at least two using it as a matter of fact, 
Chris as mentioned earlier being one, so I know that it is at least 
possible to use it, I'm just not aware of how easy it is to get it 
talking during the install process, although I remember it being said 
that it was worth trying because it can be made to talk.
