Accessible Computing Foundation Creating Fully Accessible GNU/Linux Distro

elwin_windleaf writes "The Accessible Computing Foundation's Jonathan Nadeau has started an IndieGoGo campaign to create a GNU/Linux distribution that's focused on accessibility. With 360 million blind and low vision people around the world, and most accessibility software being proprietary and prohibitively expensive, this distro could make a world of difference.

Jonathan is a blind GNU/Linux user himself who, in addition to starting the Accessible Computing Foundation, also organizes the annual Northeast GNU/Linuxfest."
