Accessibility on Linux via Orca - OpenOffice.org and other...
By user13342178 on Aug 20, 2007
My colleague Peter Korn has a nice summary of this in his blog.
I especially like the final comment. After noting the responsiveness of Orca with TTSynth and OpenOffice.org: "It's just getting the job done faster than it is in Windows."
I like it for many reasons
- Orca is e great screen reader - and it is open source!
- It shows that it was worth spending some extra time in the native UAA/ATK bridge, which we have introduced with OpenOffice.org 2.0.1.
- It shows that a good accessibility architecture, like available with GNOME, pays off
