Chris never got void-linux working out of the box and needed to build
accessible isos for it to install on his system according to what he told
me earlier today.  Apparently void-linux is not accessibility-ready which
is why no mention of that appears on their site or anywhere else.
I am curious about these things since I spend some of my retirement
testing these systems but not all of my retirement.
I am using a penguin pro 11 which is an intel machine i7 core and I
learned the current version of Jenux won't even boot on this hardware
successfully.  Why the boot failure happens I don't yet know.
The current version of google-chrome is totally inaccessible for orca
users and google messed up the package install so that package install
doesn't even work correctly either.  These are some of the things the
testers find out and I hope before any other users so others will know to
steer clear.  Vivaldi 5.5 works no better than google-chrome but at least
vivaldi installs with no errors so it installs correctly.
