Accessibility in Software
Presentation about accessibility and the lack of it in current software. It can be extremely difficult for the disabled to use linux. Text to speech is advancing, but still lags behind Apple and Microsoft. Accessibility is not limited to those visually disabled. It affects all the senses, as well as the use of hands for some. Hardware must be capable of interfacing with the software to insure the disabled are able to use the software. Too often, accessibility is pushed off until the software is released, at which time it is too late to build it.
