    Question Ease of Access Center?

    Hello!

    I'd like to know if there is an Ease of Access Center (like in Windows) on OpenSuse. Or if it isn't ... if there is some free software to install on OpenSuse.


    I'd like to know if I can find a Narrator, Magnifier, On screen keyboard and how to set up high contrast.

    Thanks,
    Ionut

    Which desktop environment are you using? For KDE, have a look here:

    KDE Wiki : KDE for Partially Sighted Users

    You're correct though, it could be made a lot easier.

    KDE4 has a desktop screen magnifier. It can be started via menu (utilites > desktop > screen magnifier) or kmag from command prompt.

    There is kvkbd virtual keyboard app. I located a package for it via webpin search. (Please note I searched for openSUSE 11.0 package).

    For KDE4, there is a text-to-speech app called KTTS. Install the kde4-kttsd package.
