Yes, I would definitely like to help with that. I’ll take a look at that quick docs page. I’ll start with installing Fedora with Orca, as there are things that a new user will have to do, like exPortbbing environment vars for accessibility, which is not well-documented anywhere really, and turning on "assistive technology" support.

I'm also blind, using the Orca screen reader for a lot of weband email stuff, along with Emacs and Emacspeak for most writing tasks.I'd like to help with documentation and anything else really, as Fedora has alot of documentation on Emacs with Emacspeak. While that's great, it's fareasier for beginners to use Orca with Fedora's Mate spin, and use Firefox andother GTK and a few QT programs, than it is to start out with Emacs and Gnusand such.I haven't found any centralised documentation on accessibility in Fedorayet (probably because all the desktop environments are sort of supposedto have their own documentation upstream?). I see that theaccessibility guide used to be part of the docs before, but hasn't beenthere in recent releases:https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html-single/Accessibility_Guide/index.html)I did find a wiki page that has some information, but it's quite out of date:https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/AccessibilityWould you like to write up some documentation pages on Orca andEmacspeak, perhaps for the quick-docs to begin with?https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/The sources are here:https://pagure.io/fedora-docs/quick-docsWe follow the pull request model for new contributions, and there arelots of folks around to help with writing and reviewing tasks.--Thanks,Regards,Ankur Sinha "FranciscoD" (He / Him / His) | https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:AnkursinhaTime zone: Europe/London
