Several of the desktop environments included with PC-BSD provide accessibility features to assist users with physical disabilities. This section provides an overview of these features and references to additional accessibility information.

GNOME2

The GNOME desktop provides features to assist users with vision and mobility impairments. To install these features, make sure that the GNOME-Accessibility box is checked (it is by default) when selecting to install GNOME either during installation or afterwards using System ManagerSystem PackagesDesktops.

The GNOME-Accessibility component installs the following software:

  • espeak[2]: a speech synthesizer for English and other languages.
  • gok[3]: application which displays virtual keyboards. You can use a mouse or an alternative pointing device to operate the virtual keyboards. It generates dynamic keyboards that contain keys to represent the applications that are running on your desktop or the menus that are contained in an application.
  • mousetweaks[4]: provides mouse accessibility enhancements such as simulating different mouse clicks without using physical buttons and a delay-click feature which opens a context menu.
  • orca[5]: a screen reader that provides access to the graphical desktop via user-customizable combinations of speech or braille.

The GNOME-Accessibility component also adds the following options to the login Accessibility screen shown in Figure 4.8b:
