Hope this helps......
Knoppix 6 is no longer KDE based, and *appears* to have
little in common with earlier versions of Knoppix. No menus
full of tools, for a start. LXDE on the desktop, too, but only
when the default 'Knoppix' boot is selected.
'Adriane' is a boot selection that brings up a text screen with
voice as the default. It is possible to launch the new 'Knoppix'
LXDE desktop from Adriane's menu, but it does seem to
be intended as a talking-terminal. My experience is very
limited, but it *seems* to be an attempt at a full-on console
with menus for the blind and partially sighted. Looks very
competent, which one would expect from Klaus.
It lacks the *wonderful* scripts of INX, of course!
Well worth a download and some experimentation, if it is
an area of interest to you, imho.
Will be offline now for a week or so, changing continents.

All the best, Ben
