We're pleased to announce the release of new x86_64 and i386 installation media for the Speakup Modified Fedora Distribution. Once again we invite you to use our images and installation guidance to install Fedora 9, also known as "Sulphur," using your hardware speech synthesizer and the Speakup screen reader on your 32 or 64-bit computing system. Downloadable images and documentation are available at our Internet address: http://SpeakupModified.Org You can also access our files using ftp or rsync with commands like: ftp://ftp.SpeakupModified.Org/speakupmodified/fedora/ rsync -l speakupmodified.org::speakupmodified The Speakup Modified Fedora provides: * installation media adapted expressly for those blind computer users who want to use the Speakup Linux screen reader to install a Fedora-style Linux on their computers. This means that the blind computer user will not require sighted assistance, and that the end result will be an installation that talks every time it is booted. * Other assistive technology including Brltty, Emacspeak, Espeak, * Gnome-Speech-ibmtts, Orca, and the recently released Tiresias large-print fonts. It's all there--in the installation * images. * Firefox-3, ready to use once your installation completes. * Fast and robust Internet connections on our hosted servers, so * that your downloads can proceed at maximum speed * Our acclaimed HOWTO to guide you through the installation * process, including setup for Fedora's accessible graphical desktop. * A mini-howto about using telnet to install Sulphur -- particularly * useful for users who do not have hardware speech synthesizers. * A yum repository so you can update your Speakup Modified Fedora * distribution the easy way--overnight in your sleep, for instance. The newly released Fedora 9 is the most accessible Fedora yet. We're pleased we can once again facilitate your installation of Fedora without sighted assistance. Enjoy!
