............no. I happen to not be impaired in any way like that, so 
having the accessibility options on the livecd only wasted space. 
However, once I can figure out why scp doesn't want to copy my iso file 
to the server, I can make a special version with the accessibility 
options back in and enabled. I'll even label it especially for making it 
clear that it's for people like yourself who want to build LFS, but 
can't see what the terminal is printing out.

And I still have to figure out how to get all of the sources onto it, 
but it seems that I may have accidentally proposed the newest lfs-livecd.
