Subject: Physical Access

Physical Access

RockBox is great, particularly since it builds in accessibility features in
for people with visual impairments.

Has anyone considered building in accessibility features for people with
physical impairments? Anyone on this list on the development team? Is this
something you have considered?

What i'm talking about is providing 'switch access' and/or simplified button
access - the cliched example of this is Stephen Hawking who uses a single
switch to communicate.

Not sure of the technical details of getting this to work with different
devices, but thought i'd throw it into the pot.
