Re: The Fedora Hardware Project

Thanks, Jef. I do agree with this. We've begun moving in this direction.

1.)	There are several activities listed for Free Standards Group Accessibility that are related.

2.)	Over the weekend I've initiated conversation between those of us (like me) who use the Speakup screen reader, and the maintainer of brltty regarding merging our activity. In the short term the goal would be to support both braille and speech users through one set of HOWTO documents and one tweaked distribution. The longer term goal would be to add other specific needs and road map them as you suggest. This activity would be FC specific, but should provide generalizable guidance to the FSG work as well.

Hopefully, I've made some sense in this. I will post here from time to time on this if folks are interested.
