the default Devuan installers are the same as Debian's. The Devuan
live images (both minimal-live, which is the "accessible" console
desktop, and desktop-live, that is the full-featured live desktop) can
be installed usinf a simple script, called refractainstaller.

I know that there are a few glitches concerning accessibility on the
Devuan graphical desktop, but I also know that several blind and
visually impaired users have successfully used and installed the
minimal-live image, which has accessible boot and ships with brltty,
yasr, espeak, and espeakup.
