Accessibility Tips for A New User
Hello everyone... I've just installed Ubuntu 7.0.4 with some sighted assistance, and got Orca going. I decided to test how usable the desktop and some apps were, and found out that I'm quite limited in what I can do. I wanted to use Ubuntu as a replacement to Windows, but I'm frustrated by the lack of accessibility of the Gnome desktop. Does anyone have any tips or hints for a blind user to get the most out of Ubuntu? I noticed that tutorials are sorely lacking for blind users, and I wonder if I'll ever be able to truly ditch Windows or am I forever cursed by Microsoft. Some tips for configuring Gnome and the most commonly used apps will be greatly appreciated.
