You're not going to mess anything up by becoming an ordinary user. But,
perhaps you don't have accessibility installed and adapting that could
take you into a thicket--arguably.
So, the Fry's box is a good bet. If you want to look at Fedora, look at
the Speakup Modified Fedora Distribution:
We have a installation HOWTO there:
The idea is that the installation process, as well as the result, is
speech enabled with Speakup.
One can also, of course, do this with Slack or Debian or Gentoo--but no
installation HOWTO, so you might want to look at ours even if you
install one of the other distributions.
