Fwd: New quote for you which might apply to the Trinity desktop

Hello, list,
I couldn't resist passing on the quotation, which hopefully means that I 
communicated the essence of TDE.  And while I was at it, I have forwarded the 
rest of what Mike said.  (With his permission, of course.)

This is the blind person for whom I have made enquiries.  I have encouraged 
the idea that he might be able to render it accessible to the blind.  I 
stressed how accessible friendly TDE is in general.

I gather a lot depends on what TDE uses in the way of Qt.  I knew he would ask 
about that, and had tried to look it up in advance (sorry about my ignorance: 
without looking it up, I just know that something in that area has been 
changing), but sadly the website was down, so I said that I would find out 
for him, though I haven't yet done so.

Still, if someone could render TDE accessible to the blind, that would be 
great.  It is so good for the partially sighted.  And this is the chap who 
re-coded the sound-chip firmware on the Raspberry Pi because the sound was 
too poor to be usable by someone blind.

My stars throughout.

Hello Lisi,

I enjoyed the talk about Trinity at the weekend.  I will certainly be
having a look at the online resources about it and trying to find out if
it might be at least on the way to accessibility for me.

Here's a nice quote for you:
