If you have a braillenote, then you can install Fedora using braille
(can't speak for speakup), using a braillified installer from
I won't even try to remember the commands because I'll probably get 'em
wrong, but they're not that hard to find. You can go through the hole
thing, then what I'd do after the install has completed, before you
reboot, is turn off firstboot, if you get the installation guide from
the speakup site and search within it for "chkconfig", then reboot. Log
in to a console as root (there will be no speech or braille), and
install brailletty either from source (by putting it on to a memory
stick or FTP) then you have braille to install anything else.

I downloaded and burned the slackware 10.0 d1 iso image and burned it, is it that 10.0 doesn't have speakup included or does that have the 2.6.22 kernel which is broeken with speakup? People give me a clue here google has beenn nothing but a pain for research and can't find any answers. What I need is a list of distros that have brltty and speakup support and a list of boot commands. It's driving me absolutely crazy not being able to get anythigng to work and everyone else is working fine.
