ADRIANE is an acronym for Audio Desktop Reference Implementation and Networking Environment, an implementation of an easy-to-use desktop system, very useful for blind people, who have a few or no computer skills. It has a dialog-based menu, supported by speech output, with an optional USB or bluetooth Braille device, which provides access to programs and functions like speech-aided web surfing through the elinks web browser, note book, pocket calculator, email with mutt and much more. From the 5.3 version of Knoppix, ADRIANE will be a part of the Live distribution.
