not a roadmap as such, but I have started drafting a document on the 
Ubuntu infrastructure for accessibility
This will get transferred to the wiki at some point when it is nearly 
complete and the most glaring errors have been fixed.
I don't know much about Lubuntu, only that it is based on something 
called LXDE as a window manager and is targeted at really old computers. 
Looking at it seems to be based on GTK, so I imagine just 
installing gnome-orca will pull in speech dispatcher at-spi2 and espeak, 
install onboard and you have an on-screen keyboard too. Does it use 
ubiquity for the installer?
