i have an idea for your installer to make the installation of sfos more easily for handicapped people. First of all, the language should not only be selectable via a button, but also ask a voice for it. this makes it easier for people with visual impairments to use. Then the system font size and color contrast should be adjustable.

Such a thing, especially the installation by voice input, offers as far as I know no operating system and would be a real all-round feature for sfos.

Installation by voice input neeeds the device to be online and in the case of jolla they would rely on a proprietary api from google or similar to do this. Network drivers can't be installed if you need the network for commands. In short: its difficult to do and there are a lot of bugs, which should be ranked with higher priority.

Why would that be necessary?

There exists pretty good offline voice recognition software; the only reason google/microsoft/apple use online methods is because they need access to your data.

AFAIK the online versions work better, but maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, good Idea, but I don't believe jolla can handle this. The installer itself needs a lot improvements for 'unhandicapped' people first.
