Seeing Linux without sight

Author: JT Smith

Yet another opinion piece at LinuxPlanet: "Being blind, one popular misconception maintains, means to give up using the computer to do anything. This is, of course, utter nonsense. Braille
screen readers have been around for years, giving visually impaired users the ability to read screens with up to 80 character-lines. There is even an
8-dot Braille system that goes beyond the standard 6-dot Braille and completely mimics the 256-character set most PCs use."
