   Sorry, but I did not have any clue about either of the packages you
named, and you gave no hint on your original email about what you were
trying to do. The obvious initial response is not to reply "Sorry, no idea",
otherwise you are very likely to receive hundreds of similar replies to wade
through, getting you absolutely nowhere. I know absolutely nothing about the
majority of the 23,000 packages available just in my usual distribution.
   Have you tried the Knoppix CD with a screen reader? I downloaded it from
the university of Kent http://www.mirrorservice.org. It does at least have a
screen reader. "KNOPPIX_V6.0.1-ADRIANE_V1.1CD-2009-02-08-EN.iso"
