Those are some awesome objectives.
I haven't tried any of your packages, but your packaging looks good by
looking at the scripts.
Good luck!

That's quite an amazing feat, to seem to have more clarity,
understanding, and dedication than a great deal of people who can see.

Thanks.

Hello everyone!
I wish to become an ArchLinux Trusted User. To that end, here
is a bit of information pertaining to me.

I started using Linux in the summer of 2000. Before that time, I used
Unix shell accounts offered by various Internet service providers.
I've been using some flavor of *nix since 1995.
I'm blind, and I've always worked from a text console. Dialup Unix shell
accounts had mostly vanished by 2000, so I installed Slackware.

I used Slackware until early 2007, and I learned a great deal about Linux
in the process. I could describe my reasons for dropping Slackware, but
I won't. It's a fine distribution, and the answer to the "which distribution
is best" question is mostly subjective.
After looking at several distros, I settled on Arch in September
of 2008. Moving to Arch was easy for me, because of my years of experience

with Slackware.

Currently, I maintain 8 packages in unsupported, and this number is growing.
See the following URL for my work:
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?SeB=m&K=cmb
My username on the BBS, AUR, and wiki is cmb.

I want to do my part to make ArchLinux more accessible to the blind.
My first order of business is to submit two packages to the community
repository: speakup and espeakup.
These two packages provide one reliable method of supplying spoken output from
the text console under Linux.

I will endeavor to faithfully represent the interests of the whole
ArchLinux user community, not just those of the tiny subset who are blind.

And here is my offical sponsorship message. Let the discussion period

I think that anyone who can help to make arch more accessible is very
welcome, maybe you could even help with the installer for blind
people. Judging from your PKGBUILDs your packages aren't trivial but
you seem to manage.

Best luck,
Philipp

Thank you. And thanks for the helpful comments regarding the nmh package
that I maintain.

I've received quite a few thoughtful replies from people on this list, and
they are all appreciated.
