I'm planning to install Slackware 13.37, and gnome, from the
The reason for me to use gnome is that I'm blind, and gnome is the only
desktop environment which so far provides accessibility.
It does this using the orca screen reader.

gnome slackbuild project.

build-script in the Accessibility section on slackbuilds.org?

And the brlapi manual can be found here:
The brltty program itself is provided in the official Slackware release,
it's just brlapi that needs to be looked at.
