Yes. Could you please add the following to the Grub menu:

1) Have the menu actually show up.
2) 20 second wait before running the default grub choice.
3) A grub choice to give a large-print, 80x25 character virtual

The preceding three things will guarantee that a person with
under-average vision can at least work within the virtual terminal.
Then I'd suggest the following:

* A recipe for vim and gvim, set up with sane fonts so the user can
  see enough to change them to suit his/her needs.
* A recipe for LXDE, with large fonts, so that one with less than
  average vision can actually install what he/she needs.
* In the MOTD, tell the user how to set the fonts in both Awesome and
  LXDE, hopefully from a config file easily seen in the 80x25 CLI mode.
  In the MOTD, tell how to get startx to point to Awesome, and how to
  get it to point to LXDE.

The preceding six suggestions are almost trivially simple additions,
that will let those with less than average vision know they're welcome
in the Gobo Linux project.
