Here’s an extract from Daniel Carrerra’s post to the Ubuntu Accessibility list:
“I met Henrik at LugRadio today (nice meeting you Henrik!).
I had given a talk about the OpenDocument format, and demonstrated
a simple ODF viewer. Henrik asked about making an accessible version
of the ODF reader, something that would let people read ODF files
right on the command-line, as plain text.”
As I understand it, the first version of the viewer was created on the day, at the venue.
I love the fact that this happened at LugRadio Live. Of course, it would almost certainly have happened anyway, but the event helped bring the right people together.
