 +===== What is Vinux? =====
 + 
 +Vinux is a [[http://​www.ubuntu.com|Ubuntu]] derived distribution optimised for the needs of blind and partially sighted users.
 + 
 +By default Vinux provides two screen readers, Braille support plus an accessible suite of applications.
 + 
 +When you boot the Vinux image, you are greeted by [[https://​live.gnome.org/​Orca/#​About_Orca|Orca]] which enables you to navigate the graphical desktop ​ environment with keyboard navigation. ​
 + 
 +As of Vinux 5.0 released November 2015, images include [[unity|Unity]] [[gnome-shell|Gnome-Shell]] and the [[mate_install|Mate]] Desktop environments.
 + 
 +It is our hope that the single image we will now be providing for each both 32 and 64 bit architectures will be able to accomidate all users.
