Warming up with the a11y stuff

We still are far from have the Guadalinfo a11y project ready, but we start to warming up :-)

Our friends from Yaco has already some good improvements on Evince (still waiting for the final patch) and they looks nice :-)

Meanwhile we are working on a “import from the scanner” feature for OCRFeeder, which is quite functional and is also waiting to be finished the patch. But also we are working on Orca. We have a few Orca’s bugs we are looking at, but we don’t have time for all of them, so we need to select the ones our client believe are more important.

Anyway, we are working now on a possibility of having keybinding profiles at Orca. There is something working but still need some fixes and some love… probably the lovely Orca’s community will help us with it. I’m very surprised about how active and friendly is the people there :-)

Well, I think I have no more news by now, stay tuned because (if everything goes well…) there will be some interesting a11y improvements soon ;-)

UPDATED: The people from Yaco has posted about their progres here:
