Will give you good character-based remote access to Linux machines from a
Windows machine.

I know of no way to access gui interfaces remotely.   This is a major need
for the blind in industry since companies are going to a server-centric
model in which the user uses a windows machine too access remote Linux
gui-based applications.

I have heard that remote graphics systems (RGS) might allow for remote audio
access, but I have not heard that this has been done.

That was my original thought. The professor for my cvlass is checking to see
if ssh is enabled on the remote systems. If it is then I should be fine,
however, there may be some  GUI applications I have to use so the remote
desktop type of access would still be helpful.

If you are going to access remot machines, what about you get a ssh client
and ssh into the other machine?
