Links for 27th February 2008

All accessibility related ones.

  • YouTube videos from India on Orca and Open Source Accessibility:

    Video #1

    Video #2.

    See the much more extensive commentary by Peter and Will on why this is great.

    Congratulations to Krishnakant Mane, (who is also an Orca community member) for his leadership in helping to bring free accessible solutions to India.

    Unlike Peter, I will comment on the start of the second video, which is a promotional video by ELCOT. There was a mail thread a little while ago on an internal bloggers alias about a post from a Sun employee that made you cringe. Well the start of this video (and the very end of it) made me cringe, but for a completely different reason.

  • GNOME Foundation Announces Program to Sponsor Accessibility Projects

    "BOSTON, Mass—February 27, 2008 — The GNOME Foundation is running an accessibility outreach program, offering USD$50,000 to be split among individuals. This program will promote software accessibility awareness among the GNOME community as well as harden and improve the overall quality of the GNOME accessibility offering."

    Hopefully this will attract quality GNOME individuals. Those interested should check the project web site.

    (thanks Will).

  • Is Your Sidewalk Accessible?

    You learn something new every day.

    (thanks Calvin).
