On behalf of the whole Vinux community I am happy to announce the 3rd
release of Vinux - Linux for the Visually Impaired, based on Ubuntu
10.04 - Lucid Lynx. This version of Vinux provides three screen-
readers, two full-screen magnifiers, dynamic font-size/colour-theme
changing as well as support for USB Braille displays. Vinux is now
available both as an installable live CD and as a .deb package which
will automatically convert an existing installation of Ubuntu Lucid
into an accessible Vinux system! In addition, we now have our own
Vinux package repository (from which you can install our customised
packages with apt-get/synaptic) and a dedicated Vinux IRC channel. In
the very near future we will also be launching a Vinux Wiki and
releasing special DVD, USB and Virtual Editions of Vinux 3.0! To
download Vinux 3.0 or to get more information on the project please
