"Visually impaired Linux users can expect their very own seeing-eye penguin, courtesy of Project Ocularis, a Linux operating system (OS) distribution that allows sight-free operation."

"JP Schnapper-Casteras, Ocularis' founder, includes on the project site a detailed editorial outlining the importance of Project Ocularis and open source to the cause of bringing increased levels of IT access to the visually impaired. The editorial addresses the advantages of open source software for the blind in its various incarnations and speaks to such user issues as quality, ease of use, fucntionality without sighted assistance, cost and accessibility."

"To meet its target audience's accessibility and cost requirements, Ocularis is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). The ocularis-desktop-0.0.1 release is currently available for download on the SourceForge development site. The project site is hosted at SourceForge as well."
