"When he realized that custom documentation for Free
Software is needed for vision-impaired users, Tony Baechler offered
to launch a dedicated service. I asked Tony what exactly he hopes
to set up and how it should work.
"Tony: I would be happy to host audio tutorials and podcasts
that are relevant for the blind using Linux, for example with
Speakup or Orca. Provided that it somehow has to do with Linux and
the blind and doesn't contain commercial advertising, I'm willing
to host it at http://audio.batsupport.com/ .
"Stop: Are you looking for recordings about specific
applications or functions, and if yes, which ones? Spam filtering,
using OpenOffice, Twitter or Facebook interfaces, programming
environments, music players...
"Tony: Any and all of the above are fine. So long as it runs on
Linux and the audio demonstrates how a blind person can use a
particular program or app, I have no problem hosting it."
