Ubuntu should be available to everyone - and accessible to everyone. We know that we’ve slipped on this, and haven’t prioritized accessibility the way we should. We want to find where the need for improvement is greatest and begin there - but we definitely don’t want to stop there.
There are two areas right now where Canonical employees could use the help of contributors who use screen readers:
- helping one of our Web and Design Engineers @sowasred2012 with changes and updates to the website
- helping our head of Desktop @kenvandine test the Flutter installer for accessibility with screen readers
If you use a screen reader or if you face other accessibility challenges and would like to contribute in either of these areas, and possibly keep testing in the future, please reply to this thread and let us know. Scott and Ken can also provide more details on their testing if you have questions. Thank you and we hope this is just the start of a good partnership with our volunteer community to make Ubuntu truly available to all people.
