Hi Cathy:

The EA release is rather out-of-date now, you would do better to
download from CVS and build (though that is not a trivial process).  I
think I can send you a 7.1 prebuilt tarball of a newer version if you
like.  I hope to update the EA tarballs soon, with something more

Bear in mind that the Gnome Accessibility Project stuff works only with
Gnome 2/GTK+-2.0 which is only in 'alpha' stage now.  However it can
help you get started so you know what is coming up for Gnome 2.

At the moment the main accessibility help that is available for RedHat
7.1 is, I believe, AccessX, which provides things like sticky keys, key
debouncing, etc.  If you need screen magnification there is a utility in
the most recent version of at-spi which could be useful even without
Gnome 2.

Feel free to email me with questions...

Best regards,
