No he didn't! But if he had he might have predicted some of the
following features for the next version of your favourite accessible
open-source operating system:

The installation and configuration of Speech-Dispatcher as the default
speech system for Orca and Espeak without the loss of multi-channel
sound facilities.

The addition of LinuxSpeaks and Emacspeak as two alternative x-
terminal or purely console based audio desktops for the beginner and
advanced user respectively.

The reconfiguration of YASR to use the Festival speech synthesizer by
default to provide a higher quality emergency backup screen-reader for
the x-terminal or the console.

The installation of accessibility toolbars and plugins for Firefox
which allow the user to tweak the layout, fonts and colours of the
internet on the fly.

The installation of xcalib and configuration of xbindkeys to provide
colour inversion as well as the ability to change the brightness,
contrast and RGB colours of the x display without using Orca or

A larger  font and higher contrast theme for the Gnome desktop by
default as well as the  inclusion of extra accessibility themes and

Support for the Spanish, French, German, Dutch and Flemish languages
and keyboard layouts out of the box.

Mousekeys will be enabled out of the box
