A KDE accessibility mailing list has been created. We hope the mailing list will be the starting point for a subproject of KDE, possibly named Access KDE, that will be dedicated to making the entire desktop environment accessible. The mailing list will serve as a forum for those who want to further KDE's accessibility to disabled users (e.g., visually impaired or low-vision individuals). Those interested are strongly encouraged to subscribe.
We aim to make KDE, applications included in the desktop package, and applications designed to run on KDE usable to all. Furthermore, we want to allow developers to discuss what changes need to be made to the KDE core, to its libraries, and to the toolkit on which it is based (Qt). We also want to encourage users to describe problems they are having accessing KDE so that developers can find solutions. Finally, we wish to use this list to collaborate with other free software projects, organizations, and individuals in order to help tie in our efforts at increasing KDE usability with the larger
Suggestions made and work done on the KDE-Accessibility mailing list will be reflected in the upcoming Linux Accessibility Conference.
