When GNOME 3.0 was released in April 2011, it had lots of shine but very little accessibility, despite the best efforts of the GNOME developers. In the year since that release, the GNOME Foundation and the Accessibility Team have been working hard to address these problems and to make GNOME 3 at least as accessible as GNOME 2 -- and hopefully even better.
In April 2012 GNOME 3.4 was released with greatly enhanced accessibility support in GNOME Shell along with improved performance and stability of Orca and other components.
This presentation will provide attendees with:
* A brief introduction to GNOME accessibility
* An explanation of the improvements made since GNOME 3.0
* The status of GNOME 3.4
* The results of the two ATK/AT-SPI2 hackfests
* Our plans for GNOME 3.6 and beyond
* ATK/AT-SPI2 implementations in other free desktop environments
