Hi Devin,

I didn’t even realize I was still subscribed to this list, it’s been dead for years at this point. We started it when I was Director of Access Technology at Free Software Foundation. I left that role years ago and, other than donating a few bucks to FSF each year, I haven’t been involved with them since.

I’m aware of some changes in accessibility in the free software community but I don’t know where to point you to get more information. I’m pretty sure the Orca mailing list is still going, you might find more useful information there.

Happy Hacking,

Greetings all,

I’m new here, but just found the accessibility statement for Gnu yesterday. It seems a bit dated, with mentions of Flash and Microsoft Silverlight, technologies which aren’t used anymore, with the most accessible Desktop environment now being Mate, instead of Gnome, Mate being now preferred by many blind Linux users, and KDE beginning work on accessibility.

Hope this helps a bit, and as a blind person who can’t code yet, but who can write rather well, knows a bit of HTML and uses Markdown daily, I’d love to help wherever I can.
