The accessibility blueprint mention that it is borken on debia-live/live-build https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/accessibility/#index2h1 . It should be interesting to test if it still the case. If it's not, it would not involve much work

Would it be an option to reuse the mechanism of the Debian Installer, as
described here?

(That's not specific to the Greeter, and the candidate solution this ticket is about would be implemented in the syslinux boot menu, not in the Greeter.)

I guess that we can reject this now that the new Greeter (in 3.0) has accessibility tools available; I'll assume that the standard keybindings to start them are supported.
