My new favorite GNOME Patch

For those of us without a disability, understanding the challenge users may experience when trying to use a computer can be a foreign concept.  (Or at least it is for me.)

Browsing Reddit, of all places, this weekend I came across this story of a user with ALS who created a patch for Eye of GNOME.  The patch contributor’s son added a comment to the bug report ( and a link to a picture ) that is a must read.  Go read it.  Now.

This is why we write free software.  All users can contribute.  And we write software that everyone can use.  Sometimes when other stuff is going on we might forget and this is a great example of why free software is important.
