There is a similar initiative in the Spanish-speaking environment, called 
tiflobuntu. It seems clear that this solution is being replicated around. 
IMO it shows two things:

1) Ubuntu out of the box is too fiddly to set up right for accessibility.
2) There is a certain amount of reduplication of effort going on.

It would be good if people who are working in this type of solution could 
(internationalization aside) get together and issue a common 
accessibility-optimized distro, run from same repositories, etc. Even better 
would be if Ubuntu came like that already, but that's probably harder to
