As someone using this who isn't blind, the keybinds for the installer work very well. However, of course, the Screen Reader still needs some improvement. Sometimes it might lag or be a little difficult to understand. But, we can get to that over time, so hopefully, by when 16.04.5 or something like that comes out, we will have this feature nailed. Congratulations.
