Reviving the Ubuntu Accessibility Team

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Penelope Stowe @ 7:24

The Ubuntu Accessibility Team will meet April 13, 2010 at 21:00 UTC in #ubuntu-accessibility on freenode.

This is the first time in over 3 years that the team has met. While there’s still a strong level of technical support happening on the mailing list and forums, I’m hoping that we can get some plans set for Maverick Meerkat and come up with the beginnings of a longer term plan make it easier for new users who have accessibility needs to use Ubuntu and find the information they need to do so. I encourage anyone with any interest in the project to come to the meeting.

For more information, including an agenda, please look at the Accessibility Team page.



  1. Shame I won’t be able to make it on Tuesday. I’ll go have a look at the logs later then. Is there an iCal URL for the meeting calendar? If not, can this be added to the agenda for Tuesday as it’d be nice to have that option.

  2. I’m an educator that serves students with learning disabilities and who is working to get independent schools to rely more heavily on FOSS. Is this meeting appropriate for me to attend?

  3. I’m interested in accessibility in Ubuntu – but I’m not sure I belong at this meeting. I’m an educator and I share class with students who have learning disabilities. I am active working to encourage use of FOSS in independent schools. Is this a meeting that can gain from my voice?

  4. Rik, we don’t really have a set plan yet, so I’d say come along and see what happens/if you’re interested. I’m happy to have anyone and everyone who is interested šŸ™‚
