Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I am happy to announce the release of Vibuntu 1.0 (aka Vinux) a
remaster of the Intrepid Ibex live CD customised to the needs of
blind and partially sighted users! It is designed to boot from a
live cd or USB memory stick, log you in automatically and then
start up the Orca screen-reader. Full-screen magnification can then
be activated with a simple keystroke.
"The type of magnification on offer depends upon whether you
downloaded the 2D or 3D version of Vibuntu. The 2D version only
offers basic options but will run on any computer, while the 3D
version offers advanced features but requires a powerful 3D
graphics card. If you are in any doubt as to which version is best
for you or do not require magnification at all I recommend you
download the safer 2D version."
