KDE Accessibility • Inform • Home


The KDE Accessibility Project is proud to announce the first Unix Accessibility Forum on 22-23 August 2004 in Ludwigsburg.

The Unix Accessibility Forum, sponsored by Trolltech, is a meeting of developers and disabled people that wish to further the accessibility of Unix for people with disabilities.

The forum will include developer discussions as well as talks and presentations on existing approaches. A call for presentations will be announced shortly. German Disability Associations have been invited to join us for feedback on the presentations of existing assistive technologies on Unix.

The Unix Accessibility Forum complements efforts like the FSG Accessibility Workgroup and the Free Desktop Accessibility Working Group. Members of Unix-related accessibility projects like the GNOME Accessibility Project, the Mozilla Accessibility Project and the OpenOffice.org Accessibility team as well as developers working on X Accessibility, assistive device support, speech synthesis, etc. are highly welcome.

We believe that accessibility is important for the general developer community. This is why the Unix Accessibility Forum is scheduled to coincide with the KDE Contributor World Conference. Participants taking part in both conferences need to register only once.

Participants with no or little income that would otherwise not be able to attend the Unix Accessibility Forum should contact Harald Fernengel for sponsoring.

Please also forward this invitation to other projects and developers who might be interested.

Please contact the KDE Accessibility mailing list or Olaf Schmidt if you have comments, questions or suggestions.
