Vinux 1.3 Released!

Vinux 1.3 Released!

drbongo and ald0 are proud to announce the new release of Vinux - Linux for
the Visually Impaired!

This release includes a variety of new packages and features, as well as
solutions for bugs in earlier versions:

It includes a range of useful console applications and the yasr
screen-reader, a selection of forensic/recovery tools so it can be used as an
accessible recovery CD/USB pendrive by more experienced users. You can now
install it straight to a USB pendrive using the Ubuntu USB installer, from
the live CD or the ISO image once installed to hard drive. The username and
password entered during the installation process is now retained and of
course Orca, a full-screen magnifier and Braille support are all available
out of the box! If you would like to try it out or read more details then

There is one known issue in this release, the cups server does not work when
you install it to a hard drive, although it works fine from the live CD or a
USB pendrive install. There is a very simple fix for this which you can
implement once you have installed it if you want to print out any documents.
There is a script which will do this for you, or you can simply type the four
lines into the terminal using the sudo command!
