Linux for blind

I'm writing on behalf of a friend who is blind, and is interested in trying a linux system. However, she obviously, has special interests, and needs a screen reader and whatnot. I was wondering if anyone else has had any experiences with blind people and linux.

And I'm totally clueless, so ANY bit of information will help. I've never known a blind person before her, so I've never cared to look.
