Boosts appreciated.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.

Don't understand why you're having all these problems. I've been running Linux literally since the .98 kernels, don't miss reloading Windows when it got so polluted with Malware I couldn't clean it up.

What distribution have you been using?

Have you tried Gentoo? I've read about a visually impaired sysadmin who used Gentoo and what happy about it. There's probably more users out there as well.

I have poor eyesight myself, but thankfully I'm alright with glasses, so I don't understand why it works so good for some and rather bad for others.
