Plasma Accessibility Sprint
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I had the idea to "make" an Plasma Accssibility Sprint. It could be a day of conzentrating a11y bugs in plasma for developers and users.
this could help a lot to improve the situation. I did a quick talk to mario (unormal) on IRC, he liked the idea. ( i hope i assigned the correct mario to this task :) ).
so this is my try to form this out. Whats the best way to propagate this without beeing aggressive or spammy?
where to announce or pin in an global calendar?
And first of all, what do you think Frederik?

To have a sprint i formed the linux-a11y community to help testing. most of them are using Arch, what is good as plasma-git packages are existing to provide the tests. maybe there is another idea to bring up an testing environment? in case of qml its maybe often just replacing some qml files on the system. Mario told about an "KDE Neon" group. how can i contact them? Maybe they have ideas as well.

chempfling moved this task from Todo to In progress on the Plasma Accessibility board.

We are having a regular Plasma sprint, maybe you'd want to join us and work on a11y?

Hi, I very much think we should meet :) The Plasma sprint is a good option, since we can then influence the right people. Do you think it would be possible to travel to Valencia for you Chrys?

The Usability & Productivity sprint is also being held at the same time and place so even more people will be available in that venue for increased cross-pollination of ideas. :)

this is a bad week for me as there are a lot of familiy internal stuff like birthdays and stuff.
But I would be happy to join you guys. let me give a talk to my girlfriend and familiy first. If i can join, I assume could not join for all the week as i have already scheduled my per year vocation to other dates.

Seems that the scheduled week has a lot of holidays here in germany. so i may be able to join you for several days.

somebody traveling by car from germany? maybe we (me and my girlfriend) can attatch :)? otherwhise i have to plan a flight then.

Howdy,

i checked, i would be able in matter of time to join about 4 days. But, i also checked what i flight to valencia costs (about 1300 euros) and this is too expensive for me and my girlfriend currently.
So not sure what to do. maybe i can meet you there on mumble/ discord?
would be awsome to use this chance!

I got information that there is some financal support for stuff like that.
but i m too late :/. So i will not stay at plasma sprint.
still my plan is to have an A11y sprint.
