Hi.. If you're ever up for it, could you please start a dedicated
thread that highlights current graphical user accessibility issues?
That way advocates can point to it when asking others to help out.

There might be checkpoints that developers still haven't heard of that
can be incidentally addressed as packages continue to evolve. Labeling
buttons is always the first thing that comes to mind for me because of
the work that W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) does toward Internet

PS For the unofficial record, I'm in the camp that says concentrating
forever limited volunteer developer manpower on fewer projects seems
like a good way to go. In fact, the word "humane" comes to mind.
