Wow. Thank you for such a positive response!

give us some feedback what you hate/dislike on normal phones
On my current phone the text is too small (so i can't read sms etc)
and the ui customisation that you can do with 'themes' does not allow
me to have a good high contrast (white on black, yellow on blue) ui :-
( The 'simplest' solutions to this are 'best practises' like respect
os/ system colours and designing/ implementing flexible ui layouts.
But you are right that there are also opportunities for 'cool'
accessibility: off the top of my head i can imagine that the 'speed
reading' technique of displaying individual letters sequentially
might give a very accessible (and fast!) way to read smss. It'd be
great to implement this and see how it flies!

Will you like to join OpenMoko development?
Yes, I am visually impaired myself, and I am a developer. And right
now I need a new phone, and one that I can use ;-) So, yes, I'm very
interested in developing for OpenMoko!
