Yes, I'd agree. Specifically, the way I see it, the problem is using a
text interface inside of a GUI interface, with a GUI screen
reader. Ssh access for me at least, was lots better under a dosbox
with the provox screen reader using win98, than it is nowadays in xp,
regardless of if I'm using a ssh client via the cmd.exe xp command
prompt, or using udf8 teratermpro, both via wineyes in my case.

I'd definitely second that.

Maybe I should've qualified my previous statements. If you're
interacting with a system at a remote location, what you describe is
indeed the case. However, if you're interacting with another system on
your home LAN, (which I believe is what Tyler is doing), then my
previous statements do stand, ssh access from gnu/linux is indeed
seamless in that case, speakup keyboard echo, and all.
