It can mean many things, but in this instance, I believe that Joseph was referring to a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (or Interface)

Subject: [Athen] accessibility VDI
Has anyone implemented an accessibility VDI? I’d be interested in some details on implementation. It is my understanding that VDI do not interact with the local machine applications or other VDIs. Therefore an accessibility VDI would need any and all software a user might need as well as complete internet access.

Also, I’ve found the VMware Horizon client itself is not completely accessible, especially via the keyboard.

Thank you.
