Assistive Technologies for Blind and Visually Impaired Users
The gnopernicus project enables users with limited vision or no vision
to use the GNOME 2 desktop and GNOME/GTK+-2 applications effectively.
By providing automated focus tracking and fullscreen magnification,
Gnopernicus aids low-vision GNOME users. Its screen reader features
allow low-vision and blind users access to standard GTK+2 and
Java-based GUI applications via speech and Braille output. By
leveraging GNOME 2's built-in accessibility framework, Gnopernicus
makes interacting with applications more efficient for these users and
enables use of the GNOME 2 desktop for some users who otherwise would
have no access to GNOME.
