Let us know some particulars as in which area it needs improvement?

I cannot know what you mean as I am not currently impacted.

Some references on accessibility:

Vinux, based on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, is a complete live
Linux distribution optimized for blind and visually impaired users. It
bundles screen readers, full-screen magnifiers, built-in support for
USB Braille displays, and optimized fonts and colors.

The Orca screen reader is the most fully-featured Linux screen
reader. It supports multiple speech synthesizers and Braille
displays. You need GNOME 2 for Orca to work because there are many
glitches in GNOME 3. As GNOME and KDE continue to present moving
targets stick with Vinux for best performance and least hassles.
