@Matt_Noyes Debian is better, at least its installer is accessible. But when you get into the GUI, it's the same across all distros, particularly if they use Gnome by default. Mate is the only accessible DE, and it's so bare-bones, without even a notification center. Basically, it's distro independent, because mainly the Desktop Environment matters, and accessibility of apps mattter too.
@devinprater @Matt_Noyes That's frustrating about Gnome and accessibility for the blind, especially since it's quite accessible for the mobility impaired. For a friend, it's significantly more accessible than Windows (though missing the software she needs so it doesn't actually matter for her).
I'm not sure why you dismiss Mate though? It's what I use on laptops. That's good news that it's usable with screen readers. I'll need to give it a try like that.
