KDE Accessibility Mailing List Started

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.
