The general idea was that the default live cd should be sufficient for 
this purpose. In Fedora 9, you can enable accessibility from GDM itself. 
Click on the left side bottom icon for details. These include a screen 
reader, magnifier and so on. I know a few people who keep track of these 
in Fedora but I don't know what's missing still.
