Hi Butch,

I use Open SSH when in the Windows environment. It runs as a console 
application so you will have to use either a Windows screen reader like Jaws 
that reads those well or a dos screen reader.

Contact me off list if you need help either acquiring this terminal 
application or if you need help setting it up.

I'm not sure what you mean by having accessibility installed.  If you mean
speech, I don't.  Are there other changes I could make to make the box
more useable?  One thing, for example, when I log in with my terminal
program, I don't see a way to distinguish files from folders.  I'm still
looking for a terminal program if anyone has any ideas.  Thanks for the
urls, I'll give those a look, and for reasons mentioned in other posts,
will likely go with fedora.
