A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
As part of a little assignment at University, I wanted to try the state of screen reading in a Web browsing context under Ubuntu 7.10. It was not very successfull.
See my blog post describing what I tried.

About the bugs & such you encountered, that's unfortunately mostly
because distributions haven't yet done their part, integrate components
together, so that you have to mix things together by hand.
Now, what you tried was GUI accessibility, which is quite recent. Try
CLI accessibility, _that_ has been working for more than a decade now;
so you can say a linux _text_ system definitely _is_ accessible.
