What makes you think that? I personally think it would be a great thing,
provided that the instructions were up-to-date. If someone were to
create such files, I would surely want them on the official site.

Again - why not? It's not like sighted users would have to download
those anyway.

That goes both ways, you know. Thanks for not wanting to help us improve
the instructions for the blind community.

That is exactly what I am trying to accomplish here, and there is no reason
why my final presentation cannot be put onto the Rockbox site, along with
the accessibleworld.org site. So where do folks get the idea that I am not
contributing?
I not only have contributed monitarilly, but I have been a promoter and
tutor of Rockbox since before it began speaking.
