Feel free to jump in and help with improving Rockbox Utility's
accessibility. It's a bit annoying blind people calling accessibility
poor but no-one actually trying to help improving it. And while some
issues are known (for example, QTabBar isn't voiced correctly due to a
Qt bug -- we added a menu entry for accessing the items directly to
work around this) the usage of sighted and blind people is quite
different. Being a sighted person I have no idea about the experience
for a blind guy -- unless someone tells me.

I'd really like to see more people working on Rockbox Utility,
especially accessibility. Someone picking up the command line version
might be a rather easy start. Or starting a wiki page analyzing the
current accessibility status and issues of Rockbox Utility.

Oh, and please follow the list etiquette and stop top-posting. It is
not wanted on this list. Thanks.
