The Gnopernicus project aims to enable users with limited vision, or no vision, to use the DebianGnome desktop applications effectively.

By providing automated focus tracking and fullscreen magnification, Gnopernicus aids low-vision Gnome users, and its screen reader features allow low-vision and blind users access to standard GTK+2 and Java-based GUI applications via speech and braille output. By leveraging Gnome's built-in accessibility framework, Gnopernicus will make interacting with applications more efficient for these users, and enable use of the Gnome 2 desktop for some users who otherwise would have no access to Gnome.
