audio, is not as difficult as it sounds
thx for this sentence :P
but now back on topic, accessibility sounds like an important feature.

I have a WIP port of brltty but little time to finish it. If someone is willing to take over, it's in a separate git branch.
As for audio, is not as difficult as it sounds. Morse was actually a prototype for it. We don't need full synthesis. We can prerecord common sentences and just tell letter by letter  when we don't have it prerecorded. It's not optimal but good enough to solve most of the cases

Considering the complexity of voice generation, maybe it would be more simple to support braille displays which should be less complex to implement. Not speaking that most blind people using computers should have one I guess, since it sounds more productive to me.
My 2 cents to the subject.

Hi Majid,

currently grub includes audio output driver that outputs morse codes
for characters and digits using built-in PC speaker. I am not aware of
anyone working on full scale speech synthesizer, but I forward your
mail to grub-devel for attention.
