One of the greatest challenges facing the Linux community is accessibility. Unfortunately, the involvement of those most affected by this - people with disabilities - is meager at best. This presentation will discuss the benefits that the disability community can provide, and why accessibility is essential to the survival of Linux in the future. During this presentation, I will touch upon the following: the state of accessibility in Linux; the 'confinement cycle', and how Linux can be used to break it; ways to improve accessibility (and why this is important); and how the disability community can bring benefits to the Linux community.
Audience: beginners to experts, especially those with disabilities and/or anyone interested in accessibility. Rudimentary knowledge of assistive technology is recommended but not required.
