First, there most certainly is screen review during the installation 
process, but you have to select the speakup keymap to get it. In other 
words, do not select U.S. when prompted to select a keymap. Though it is 
the default choice, it's the wrong answer.

Re disk partitioning, it's well and good to create your partitions with 
fdisk or some utility other than diskdruid. But, you will need to label at 
least / and /usr, and I think diskdruid is the only do do that.

So, highlight the partition you want to label and select edit. This will 
drop you into an edit field and you can specify the mount point.
