If I understand correctly, from what the description on the TalkingArch
project webpage says, it is the Arch iso with a few added packages to
help the visually impaired install Arch. I suppose that by this it means
the user is responsible for doing all the steps described in the wiki to
install Arch. I don't see any problem with this.

What I meant before is curses/graphical/one click installers that do
everything automagically. The user will be clueless as to what is
installed and how it is configured, and will waste everyone's time
playing a game of twenty questions to solve a trivial problem when the
solution is many of the times in a wiki page.
