Accessibility BoF

Current status, how to test yourself at home, future projects

Accessibility is an important matter in basically all of Debian and its derivatives.

We will first give a short introduction on accessibility ; for a longer introduction, please see the slides of a previous presentation as well as the transcript of the presentation.

We will then talk about the current status of Debian: the Debian installer, text and graphical applications.

We also want to give attendees an opportunity to give a try at testing a few things themselves. Make sure to have brltty, kvm and gnome-orca (and gnome desktop) installed, as well as a recent wheezy GTK installer image on your machine for the installer part. More details are available on the debian installer accessibility wiki, and in the (old but still useful) accessibility and application accessibility HOWTOS, and the text application accessibility HOWTO.

Last but not least, we would like to talk about the future projects, as listed on our accessibility-devel wiki : some packaging of course, but also liveCD support, documentation and inclusion into the NM process, debtags, debbugtags, ... Your ideas are welcome of course!
