I respect what you are saying about blind people but don't you think that they would have help for some things?

I mean, I really don't want to sound like an uncaring jerk but where do you draw the line? Do you put up your tuts for your friends and users to use or do you not because there are 3 that canot read it and you don't want to hurt their feelings.

Hi,
There might be many more impaired users than you think. Some don't see the colors like others and need contrasted colors, some have other types of trouble (I am not specialist, however there are many writings on the web related to this topic), and some don't see at all. They do possess tools to let them use the web, specific tools and some allow using Free Software.

In France we do have a specialist, he started with Free Software, and now as a blind user he not only help others but does his career as consultant to help other impaired people get the most relevant equipment as per hardware and software, and he also gives conferences related to that. (Also a contributor with many translations). He is also a long time buddy on the chans... and several impaired developers are actually working on the side of the LXDE team to help develop the accessibility of the tools... which interests them very much since Gnome has become too heavy for more than one of their machines. :|

Then if tomorrow you will suddenly have someone close to you who would start living this problem, wouldn't you want this person to be also able to access to all the parts of the web that he or she would want to enjoy ? I am sure you would.

I understand that you might be impatient to see all the wonderful docs written by djohnston, particularly as he writes and presents docs wonderfully, but patience is necessary, if not just a great virtue. ;-)

PS: I notice you are not polite towards yourself and I am not sure this is acceptable considering the rules of the forum. ;)

Good leaders being scarce, following yourself is allowed.
