Hi Florian,

on yesterday's LinuxDay in Austria, the request for a separate
accessibility mailing list came up.

I guess we're quite too early to do this, but on the other hand, I see
that a dedicated working space for those involved in the topic could
be interesting indeed.


I would definitely subscribe to such a list - because of my involvement
in the OOo/Libo extensions odt2daisy and odt2braille (and another one
under development) and my general interest in accessibility.
Accessibility in an authoring tool always has two aspects: the
accessibility of the tool's UI itself (which is not necessarily the same
on every platform) and the accessibility of its output.

Best regards,

This seems like quite an important developer detail to work out right 
from the very start. Are the developers aware of accessibility concerns? 
Also from a marketing point of view, if we are to market the suite to 
governmental agencies subscribing to accessibility rules in their 
procurement of software applications, then we should  be discussing this 
sooner than later.

After reading the posts on this thread, I am convinced that we should 
have an accessibility mailing list and openly encourage and recruit 
members so that this may be addressed. I am also sure that the 
developers will also be interested in the suggestions from such a group. 
We could also get links to any governmental rules/laws relating to this 
for reference.

I would be interested in "lurking" such a mailist.
