Accessibility autostart

Notes about packaging

  • pkg-a11y project on alioth, we usually use git repositories.
  • speakup: speakup_decpc is not free, that's why we use a dfsg branch. To release a newer upstream version, pull the upstream branch from the dfsg branch, then pull the dfsg branch from the debian branch, then run git-buildpackage --git-tag --git-upstream-branch=dfsg
  • liblouis*: import tarballs to the upstream-import branch (git-import-orig file.tar.gz --upstream-branch=upstream-import), then pull into the upstream branch and discard the conflicts in generated files which we do not ship in the .orig.tar.gz


Testing scenarii (see explanation on http://lists.debian.org/debian-accessibility/2013/10/msg00026.html)


What is the status of this? the web page claims the repo is at https://googlecode.com/hg/ but that's an empty hg repo. Is developement happening somewhere else?

afaik a11y support for mono is packaged, is there more to package / update or is testing still needed for this?


More generic details on http://brl.thefreecat.org/wiki/Installer

  • Tune accessibility support in the liveCD.
  • Add brltty/speakup parameters preseed support?
  • Create a webpage that generates preseed files according to the hardware selected by the user in a form.
  • Another way is putting parameters in the iso itself:


  • Add AT-SPI and Orca/gok to debian installer
  • speakup translations should be loaded automatically according to installation locale, at least
  • desktop qualification: DebianDesktop/Requalification/Jessie
