Project description

Debian-Accessibility is an internal project to develop Debian into an operating system that is particularly well fit for the requirements of people with disabilities. The goal of Debian-Accessibility is a completely accessible system which offers users with disabilities the highest possible amount of independence, built completely on free software.

We envisage that Debian-Accessibility will add value to existing packages by providing patches to fix problems very specific to certain user groups or conducting Accessibility validation tests and providing modification suggestions based on the results.

Email List

The Debian-Accessibility mailing list is the central point of communication for Debian-Accessibility. It serves as a forum for potential, as well as current, users of the Debian system who do have special needs. Additionally, it is used to coordinate development efforts around the various topics of Accessibility. You can subscribe to and unsubscribe from it using the list web page, and also read the list archives.

Relevant Software

The first attempt to put the software into categories might be not the best. Send any suggestions for improvements to the mailing list, or to Samuel Thibault.
