Some of them are better accessible and some are not.

Not really.
Some come with stuff preinstalled.
That is the only difference.
They all usually have it available in the repos...
Otherwise you just have to build from source...

When I need to build something from source, I don't consider that program "accessible". Note that I am not talking only about the accessibility for the blind. A build can be successfully made with just a simple make make test and make install, but if it gives errors, and under Linux very often appear those errors when compiling, due to missing libs or programs, sometimes is very hard to understand which lib is missing, or to understand that a certain lib is present but it is an older version and it doesn't work with the program you want to install.
