As they are for me, as a vision impaired Linux user.

In short, there is still a long way to go. GNOME itself with the various 
packages available for vision impaired users is usable, but such common 
tasks as web browsing need a lot of work before they are usable by the 
disabled masses. Things are constantly being worked on however, and 
there is sometimes a way round things if a user's need is well 
understood and requirements are clearly stated.
