OK, thought I would take another look at Zorin OS 10 32-bit Ultimate - well all the menus now speak with Universal Access speech ... the downside? An individual with severely impaired vision is reliant on keyboard shortcuts - in particular, the windows key being bound to the menu - this should be looked at with some urgency - sighted users can see where the menu button is and can navigate with the mouse - but there will be no spatial awareness as to where the mouse is on the screen!

Sadly there is no backend to Orca anymore - this is entirely down to the 'short-sightedness' (pun intended!) of the Gnome Project not acknowledging the need for an 'exception editor' which Orca had before. The Gnome project in their infinite wisdom decided to build it (Orca) into the Gnome 3 desktop to prevent system crashes. Also it cannot be altered from 'all punctuation' to 'some' or 'most', nor can it be chosen for 'characters', 'words only', 'characters and words'.

Things are not looking good as far as accessibility goes for GNU/Linux in general - with the exception of Compiz accessibility settings - anyone requiring speech for navigation will be sorely disappointed! :cry:

Installed Zorin10 32-bit yesterday and managed to get all the old Awn applets installed and here is the strange thing - I got the weather applet to work, including forecasts, but after I updated the system it has gone pear-shaped so have resorted back to Cairo-Dock once more and used it's weather applet. Also managed to get GnoMenu installed and bound the Menu to the Left Windows key! :D
