Someone is already working on that, but it has absolutely nothing to
do with this thread, the ticket or the issue presented to FESCo. It's
a completely different situation. Please try to stay on topic, or
start a new thread.
"Someone please explain to me why chromium/chrome is so popular? Why do
most popular linux distributions either come with it or make it
available in it's repositories? Mind you I'm thinking about this from an
accessibility standpoint, not a usability standpoint. For me and those
who cannot see, chrome is unusable unless you use google's extension. I
don't know whether chromevox and google's tts voices are open source, I
suspect not, but that's really not the point. I'm not worried about
chrome/chromium becoming the default in fedora. I am however concerned
that we've become so focused on getting more users that we're willing to
do just about anything to get them. If that means skype and chrome, so
be it. Those just so happen to be programs I cannot use because they are
inaccessible. I'm sorry for those of you who've had to hear me go on
about this, but it's beginning to feel like I'm being heard, but
dismissed. Yeah but most of us have sight so we don't have to deal with
that, is the usual response. No one from fedora has said this, this is
from the wider sighted linux community itself when I bring up chrome. It
seems to have blown up overnight and I can't understand it. It's
proprietary, and takes the best of open source and closes it off.
