This page keeps track of the specs we work on and we want to have implemented. Our specs are also tracked in Launchpad.

Natty Specs

Current Priorities

  • Research with existing users of Ubuntu to identify what accessibility requirements exist and what work needs to be done in these areas (personas ie., blind, partially blind, deaf, etc.). With these personas defined we will be able to identify solutions for each persona and if required coordinate development to implement them.
  • Increase developer awareness concerning accessibility to encourage applications to be designed from the start with accessibility in mind. This avoids unnecessary refactoring of applications.
  • Create focus groups around different areas of software (for example text-to-speech, screen readers, voice recognition etc) to bring together people interested in each area.
  • Current community documentation must be updated
