We have just founded a group, called liberte0 (Freedom 0). Its purpose
is to promote the accessibility for everybody, so that a high variety of
users know the free software in accessibility matter, and to let a place
so that people can have info on accessibility. This group is French, so
our core mailing is in French, but it is about our actions with users
and some support to french-speaking users (feedbacks, etc.).

But in parallel we opened a multilingual website, whose purpose is to
speak mainly in English. This is a technical mailing list. 2 purposes:
1. enabling to new dev who want to work in accessibility technologies or
to make thir free software accessible to have a place to ask questions,
have feedbacks, with technical devs, so that they can understand that
accessibility is not so hard, but it's especially an approach, and not a
big effort. It's useful because we meet often devs 7who are interested
but who don't know where to begin, where to have doc about the widgets,
the at-spi, assistive technologies, etc. Typically I wasn't good to
answer to openbox's dev who wanted to do efforts about a11y of her WM,
I'm sure you could gi(e her basics to proceed. And maybe it would give
ideas to some people to contribute to accessibility so that it is in
2. I feel today one who want to have a global technical approach of the
accessibility, in particular in GUI matter, needs to be subscribed to
various lists. I think, even if I know most devs are subscribed to all
lists, that it'd be useful to have a platform where all devs and
power-users could have technical exchanges, if they work for Qt, GTK,
distros, oriented or not, at-spi/qt-at-spi, etc. I think this mailing
can gather on a single place all the a11y devs, that will enable to
everybody to have the same info immediately, to discuss it, to speak
together, to exchange their experiences, and so to make proceed
accessibility in general, regardless the platform where a dev works (Qt,
LibreOffice, OOo, Qt, Mozilla, etc.).

If such a project is of interest for you, subsc!ibe to tech AT liberte0
DOT org. Don't hesitate to forward the address. You can subscribe
sending a message to sympa AT liberte0 DOT org with subject: "subscribe
I hope the project, in particular this technical, can be considered as
useful and that a full community of accessibility will have a common
place to speak regardless the origin of everyone, technically and

Don't hesitate if you have questions about this group, here or on the
tech mailing list. We'll answer as much as we can.
