I am a teacher in a secondary school in Spain and I have a blind student.  I have found out edubuntu and it seemed to me very interesting.  I take to time looking for a linux solution similar to Jaws for Wz and although I have seen Oralux, emacspeak and others, I think that it would be important that edubuntu came prepared with complete support for blind people with programs like gnopernicus, festival, support for braille devices, screen magnifiers, etc.  
Contemplates edubuntu these posibiidades in the basic installation of the system?.
