Hi all, I use Vinux inside a virtual machine and use Windows as my 
primary operating system. I think Vinux is an excellent version of 
Ubuntu for the visually impaired and I look forward to further 
developments with the project. The place to download Vinux is 
www.vinux.org.uk. Standard Ubuntu can be used by the visually impaired, 
however Vinux has the visually impaired configuration set up by default. 
So there is no need to set the accessibility options in Orca like you 
have to for Standard Ubuntu.
