And now a word from Rob to fill you in on where things stand with the Vinux project...
"Developing for accessibility on Linux is a very difficult skill set to find, if you know of anyone who could help or yourself please get in touch with us. Give friends Vinux CD's, blog and post to social network about us, help us provide media such as videos or audio walkthroughs about what you love about Vinux or your favourite applications.
For people wanting to get involved with testing Vinux images first they must subscribe to the mailing list and introduce themselves to Bill Taylor our testing team leader. Vinux 5 is still under debvelopment and has a way to go. We do not want to rush a release
before all issues are addressed and all bugs ironed out.
A very common question is "What will be new with Vinux 5?" To start off we have Orca 3.12, Espeak 1.4.8 and hopefully a great suite of packages that Vinux members have come to rely on from our releases. The development stage for Vinux 5 started very early this cycle, probably December/January, with some packages being rebuilt from Vinux 4 and others being upgraded and reviewed."
Please remember that Vinux very much belongs to the community. It is run on a
completely volunteer basis and could not exist without community support. If you
feel you can contribute in any way, get in touch with Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org and
offer your support.
Thanks for reading, and we will keep you updated as the development moves along.
