It would be nice if kde some day advanced to the point where a speech 
synthesizer user could download a kde iso and use speech screen reader 
to install it eyes free and then run the installed system eyes free.  I 
came pretty close to doing that with existing software including orca 
and got a clock and calendar up on a screen to set the date and time but 
couldn't get beyond that and I don't know any sighted people who use kde 
who could have come and helped me out with that.  So I never got to 
write up step-wise installation documentation for it either.  In order 
to get to any such goal, I have no clue what will be needed since 
everything is so disorganized on the kde end of Linux at least for
