Re: some comments on software platform accessibility


  Comments on comments:

  First there is lot of job opportunities within file, mail and
webserver maintenance. MOst of those use some *x operating system. Most
of those have no configuration interface, just a bunch of text files to
edit. No menus, no buttons, no dialogues, no bitmaps, no images and no
accessibility problems.

  Secondly: ever after learnign windows and all tricks of his/her
screenreader with every program used blind worker should be equally or
more productive than sighted colleagues who can sinply look the screen.

  This difference exists of ccourse in *x environment too but there it
is mainly reading speed, not figuring layout of the screen.

  As a sidenote:  local training center for the blind planned to keep
course on Linux but they had severe problems to find a teacher; all
blind  advanced LInux users they askedwere too busy with their own jobs.

  Fortunately they found finally one who volunteered because it was
Linux course.
