GNU Project launches accessibility initiative [LWN.net]

GNU Project launches accessibility initiative [LWN.net]

Quite cool. In a telephone call last year (or this?) I mentioned to Peter Brown of FSF (executive dir.) the work being done with the OpenDocument Format, FluidProject, and others on accessibility, and my strong desire that the Foss community, writ large, could (and should) participate in creating sustainable inclusive design software. My notion is that freedom (as both the positive and negative quality) exists when all can access, use, and enjoy the practical and legally enabled qualities of software. Software should thus be designed with the inclusion of all in mind. (I conducted a class on this subject at University of Toronto not too long ago.)
