Dear Maintainer,
this is a migration of:
<https://git.devuan.org/devuan-infrastructure/Installer_Feedback/issues/3>

When the option to install with speech synthesis is chosen by pressing s and enter at the boot prompt, the resulting installed system isn't fully accessible if
the user chose to install using the default devuan desktop environment. Specifically, because the default session manager is slim, the orca screen reader doesn't
activate at the GUI login screen. This is true on both i386, and amd64.

Installing lightdm and lightdm-gtk-greeter is still a useable option in jessie, but I understand that will not be the case in the future. The only other solution in this
+case for now is for the user to run startx by hand to get a GUI console. Another option is to login without speech using slim, once a sighted person has described the login screen, and the blind user has a routine worked out which key strokes to enter, and when in that routine to type in the user name and password. This solution is not ideal, since it requires assistance initially.
