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. -- Mauro Santos
