Yes. That was I who wrote about the graphics labelling. If you are
using a video card set to 32-bit colour depth and 1024x768 resolution,
my JAWS graphics file will probably work for you. I recommend you
contact me off-list if you want it. I needed sighted assistance
initially to figure out which graphics needed labelling, but once I had
done that, I was able to perform a fairly minimal Cygwin installation by
only selecting the packages I wanted and then set up a Rockbox
development environment. Mind you, it's still not pretty to do, because
it's all pure mouse work with the JAWS cursor.
