Wubi accessibility options don't make much sense

Bug Description

Hi there,

While testing Wubi I noticed there was an option for Accessibility features. Clicking on the Accessibility option however pops up a Window with some options that don't make much sense.

The options are:

Visiibility Aids:

Visibility 1
Visibility 2
Visibility 3

Mobility Aids:

Mobility 1
Mobility 2

and finally, None.

This doesn't really explain what the differences are between the options (apart from Braille and None). I would say it could do with either a box explaining what each option is when a user clicks on it (or a mouseover popup description of each option) or possibly a screen shot showing showing what each option is. Also renaming the options might also be useful. I see looking in the appearance applet in Ubuntu, there are High Visibility and High Visibility Large print options which is great, but I wouldn't know which one to select by reading the accessibility options in Wubi.

It's also been brought up on the Ubuntu-Accessibility mailing list here: http://osdir.com/ml/ubuntu-accessibility/2009-06/msg00056.html

Just noticed this in Quantal; best to remove this menu if it's not being used.

Its actually best to get these properly renamed for the profiles we have now, and tested. I need to find where the wubi code is and update this myself. I'm still assignee for this bug, so I'll chase it up.
