DistroWatch.com: Vinux

Vinux

Last Update: Thursday 17 July 2014 04:51 GMT


Vinux is an Ubuntu-derived distribution optimised for the needs of blind and partially sighted users. By default Vinux provides two screen readers, Braille display support and a friendly community. When booting the live Vinux image, the users are greeted by the Orca screen reader that enables them to navigate the graphical GNOME desktop using keyboard commands. Additionally, Brltty provides grade 1 and 2 Braille output via Orca.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 241 (40), 6 months: 237 (39), 3 months: 226 (37), 4 weeks: 228 (37), 1 week: 226 (39)

Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (219)
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.
