Hi Trish,

I'm assuming the first step is to get the installer to recognise things 
like Braille keyboards early in the installation process and ask (how 
does the installer know what language to use?) via a voice announcement 
if the user would like to use special input devices or a normal keyboard?

It looks like the first step is to find someone who knows more about 
kernel modules, when they get loaded and where in the install process 
that this special equipment can be first recognised and used.
