Linux und Screenreader


Hallo liebe Liste,

ich habe mich eingetragen um mal hier zu fragen, was so der Stand 
der Dinge ist bei Linux und Screenreader-Software.
Ich möchte eigene Projekte auf Barrierefreiheit testen, dazu 
aber, vor allem in der Arbeitsphase, nicht immer Windows booten 
müssen. Zumal ich einen lokalen Apache nutze und dann alles 
doppelt haben muß.
Hat hier jemand schon mal probiert, JAWS unter Crossover Office 
von Codeweavers zu installieren? (Nach dem freien Wine wage ich 
nicht zu fragen, da bin ich sogar mit dem Internet Explorer 
gescheitert). Ich bin da ja skeptisch, weil JAWS meines Wissens 
auf irgendwelche internen Schnittstellen zugreift in Windows.

Wie ist es mit emacspeak? Ist das eine empfehlenswerte 
Alternative, zumindest zum Testen? 
Von dem Sprachmodul unter Gnome höre ich leider keinen Ton.

Ich habe hier übrigens Suse 9.1.

Herzlichen Dank schon mal für Hinweise!

Herzliche Grüße

Arnd

SBL/SuSEConfig problem

Hi,
I know this is a cup of tea which got a bit cool over time but:

I can't get cursor routing to work on my machine :

SuSE 9.1 PRO SBL 2.2-23 (FTP.ed from the 9.2 repository) 
kernel 2.6.5-7-145-default (updated by suse).

Okay, I know you've got to deactivate UTF-8...
So I tried changing the settings in /etc/sysconfig/language and 
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard accordingly and then run /sbin/SuSEconfig... However 
no matter what I do something overwrites my lc-variables. If any one knows the 
problem and has solved it I would be really thankful.
Attached are my /etc/sysconfig files and the ouptut of locale run by root.

Regards,
 Jeronimo Sarioglou

Installing SUSE with Braille and/or speech


Hi.  If I'm asking obvious questions, I apologise.  When trying to install SUSE
9.0 Professional using my Alva 340 terminal, I'm having a lot of trouble
navigating the text-based YAST utility.  My display isn't tracking properly
throughout the install, as I try to move from button to button, check box to
check box, etc, using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys.  Consequently, I can't really
install it because I can't tell where I am.  Is there a work-around?  Or, is
there a way I could install using speech?  I have a hardware synthesizer,
Apollo II.

Thats a known problem and it depends not on the braille device you are 
using. Because of the complexity of YaST2, the installation tool, the 
screenreader isn't able to focus allways on the important information. 
We tryed to solve that problems but without changes on YaST2 we aren't 
able to do anything :-(. Hopefully the next distros are working better 
during installation.

>Or, is there a way I could install using speech?  I have a hardware 
>synthesizer, Apollo II.

No. Speechsupport can not be enabled during installation. But even if 
this would be possible, you'd have the same problems.

We recommend to install the system with the default settings leaving 
every thing in the installer unchanged. Skep even the network 
installation etc. After setting up the system this way, you could do 
your changes in the running system, YaST2 will work better on a 
installed system. If you can't do the installation with the defaults,

Not necesarely. Try it the following way:

1. Open the file /etc/sysconfig/language
2. Modify the value for RC_LC_CTYPE:

   RC_LC_CTYPE="de_DE <at> euro"

  Or anny other setting that fits your needs...
3. Modify the value for RC_LANG:

  RC_LANG="de_DE.UTF-8"

   Or any other setting, that fits your needs...

After this modifikations, execute SuSEconfig and restart the keyboard 
settings:

rckbd restart
