Hello all,
I would like to let everyone know that I now have the first disc of the 
Slackware 10.1 CD set available in a speakup modified form. I started this 
project with Slackware 10.0, and have decided to continue it due to its 
success. In case you don't already know, this project provides a Slackware 
install CD with the Speakup screen reader in all kernels. The speakup.s kernel 
has been removed, and all other kernels have been recompiled to include 
Speakup. This allows blind and visually impaired users to install Slackware 
Linux using the XFS filesystem, using SATA or SCSI, or using any other support 
provided by the kernels on the CD.

You can download the speakup modified ISO image via ftp at:


Or via rsync at:


I have also set up a web site for this project, which I am currently revamping. 
You can find the site at:


In the past, I provided both discs 1 and 2 in a Speakup modified form. I 
regrette to inform everyone that as of version 10.1, disc 2 of the CD set no 
longer appears to be a bootable rescue CD as it was in the past. Because of 
this, disc 1 is the only one available on my site for this version. It's really 
too bad actually. That CD made a nice rescue disc.

If anyone has any questions, comments, flames, etc. concerning this project, 
feel free to contact me via email at jbahm at pcdesk.net. Enjoy!
