Orca (a Linux-based screen reader) should run on an older EEE PC just
fine. What version of Linux is it? I may be able to help you install it.

Subject: [Athen] Screen reader and Eee PC?

I am working with someone who is blind that is in need of a low/no cost
screen reader for her PC. It turns out she has been given a Eee PC. I
am perfectly unfamiliar with this puppy. It is apparently a Linux based
laptop. It is running an Intel R Mobile Processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB Hard
Drive, and runs some kind of word processing programs called Star Office
8 and Ez PenPower Jr. Seems to use Firefox for a browser.

Anyway, I need some suggestions here on providing screen reader
capabilities. Thanks in advance...
