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
<harry at kdevelop.org> for sponsoring.

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

Please contact the KDE Accessibility mailing list
<kde-accessibility at kde.org> or Olaf Schmidt <ojschmidt at kde.org> if you
have comments, questions or suggestions.
