Open Source Projects by Jamal Mazrui
October 5, 2010
Although my web site about nonvisual software development
lists mosts of my open source projects, it needs updating to be more
comprehensive. It also lacks links to separate documentation about the
programs, which would help some people evaluate features before
downloading or installing the whole program. This document is an attempt
to address those issues in the short term. It lists my most popular
programs to date (excluding screen reader scripts), and also includes
links to their documentation only.
Nearly all of these are Windows-based programs published under the GNU
Lesser General Public License (LGPL), explained at
Some programs are written in cross-platform languages, so may be adaptable
to run on other operating systems as well. Anyone may use the programs in
either binary or source code form. I welcome contributions that fix
problems or enhance features.
