Accessible-Coconut is an excellent operating system:
It uses Ubuntu as an intuitive and stable base, with a clean MATE desktop as its environment. Trying to find and configure the screen-reader in other systems (as a newer user) was nearly impossible, and this OS has it on at launch. It also comes with an impressive spread of accessibility options like a print-to-text app as well as Braille keyboard configuration.
Also, importantly, it downloads via a very simple GUI. It's in plain speech and is easily understood (which is leagues better than more well-known OSs).
Also also, the entire ISO is less than 3GiB which is my personal standard. Leaves more room for funny JPEGs.

In my opinion, this distribution is really amazing. It has many useful functions and many useful applications installed. It also has facilities for people with disabilities. I personally recommend checking out this distribution not only for potential beginners of this system, but also for more advanced Linux users. I didn't expect it to be a distribution based on Ubuntu, which would be good. The MATE desktop itself is very well configured and refined. The system itself (even though it is Ubuntu) has not caused me any major problems so far. It is very simple to use. I can operate it and it has many useful graphic tools. I personally highly recommend this distribution.

Accessible Coconut is fantastic!

Pre-configured accessibility tools, diverse applications, and user-friendly interface make it a breath of fresh air.

The pre-configured with screen readers and magnifiers, make navigation a breeze.

Math tutor is another great feature that enables learning basic mathematics fun for young ones.

Plus, there are a number of languages in which this is available..

Such software are welcome to make the world more accessible to everyone.

I'm impressed, Highly recommend!
