Subject: Re: [PATCH2] Basic braille screen reader support
Date: Thu, 24 Apr 2008 01:39:00 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080424003900.GO4825@implementation> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20080223131028.GC4244@implementation>

Hello,

Could the basic braille screen reader be pushed to 2.6.26?

Else, could at least the patch below be applied, so that people can
compile external accessibility modules a lot more easily? (no need to
patch vanilla kernel, which is a huge win for people who already have a
hard time just using their computer...)

Samuel

Export functions typically used by screen reading modules.
