Not to mention, for speech users, how they handle audio.
I use Debian, and I think I've been spared some of the problems discussed on
the Orca list as a result. My impression is that some distributions make many
more default choices for the user than does Debian. Orca and Gnome
accessibility also tend to attract quite a number of inexperienced users who
haven't learned their way around a Unix-type operating system, and for whom
dealing with problems is more difficult than it would be to those of us who
approach the situation with the benefit of greater knowledge and familiarity
with the software environment.
