Make 2012 the Year of Accessibility for GNOME!

I’m incredibly excited – today we launched a fundraising campaign for accessibility work on GNOME. Accessibility is so important, and it’s exactly the kind of software that must be free and open. It’s also the kind of group effort that is well suited for nonprofit free software development – truly making software for the public good. Check out the information about the campaign and especially read Robert Cole’s story.

I’ve been so moved by the dedication of the a11y team. I hope we raise a lot of money so they can tackle all of their goals to improve GNOME’s accessibility. Please donate to the campaign now and tell your friends! I can think of no better way to get into the holiday spirit!

  1. Good idea! Best wishes, too.

    Besides, a few of my colleagues (physically handicapped) use their right hands only when working with computer keyboards. One guy is learning touch typing on keypad (0-9) for Japanese entry which I set up on his Windows machine. Why not on GNOME?
    Here’s my modifications on his Windows: http://www.purple.dti.ne.jp/ingenieria/bellday.html (Japanese; English translation in progress)
