Wrong list. If you want to learn about whales, you don't ask about them
on the telephones list.
Marketing is about spreading LibreOffice and thus about spreading
information about it's features.
Even if the disabled are a marketing area neglected by many other
products - I don't think that we need to follow this way.
In the opposite: We should consider Accessibility Marketing as an
important part of our strategy.
If we didn't by now, this is neither Timothy's nor any other's fault.
Thanks Bernhard. I get ticked-off [I would use other language, but not
here] when people do not seem to want to deal with helping people with
accessibility issues within their packages. As I understand it, from
staff on agencies that work with the disables/impaired individuals, the
numbers of individuals needing accessibility options is a growing
percent of the population in the USA. I am one of those individuals. I
have learned to compensate for my issues since the early 1970's. My
typing skill is affected but back when I started typing, there was no
options to use to help people. With the spread of speech-to-screen
computer controlling packages, this helps many individuals, but not me.
My speech is also affected since my first stroke. But, I deal with it
my own way.
So it would be nice to get information to be passed on to those agency
staffers. I did get someone to point me to a wiki page to help me see
the "goals" of the LibreOffice Accessibility "work". I thank that
individual for his help.
He doesn't want to learn to talk to whales, but asks for information
about whales on the list of a mammal research institute.
If you don't have any *positive* contribution it is far better to shut
up and let others comment his request.
Providing him with the necessary links to find out himself as Drew did
would have helped much.
And using this posting as basis for the creation of a dedicated
marketing activity about accessibility would be even better...
PS: And if you think it is better to subscribe to a list and
unsubscribe after a few days - that's your opinion and you could have
told this in a friendly manner. Do you know how easy it is for
impaired people? I don't - and neither me nor you have the right to
