Re: Number of folks on the list

In addition to the NFB, I think the ACB also has a blind software group that can be accessed via their main page (www.acb.org).

There are other lists besides this one that would be of interest -- for
example program-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx and the nfb and acb computer science related
lists.  There is also blindwebbers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and nfb-web@xxxxxxxxxx
for web programming by blind.
I'm sure there are others as well.
If you want a current list of nfb sponsored lists, go to www.nfbnet.org and
look at their list of mailing lists -- you might find some good resources.
For example, while math is not exactly the same as a computer programming
list, there is a list called blindmath that discusses math at all levels for
blind, and that gets into computer access quite frequently.

Anyway, thought I'd pass it along.
Good luck.

There are other lists of course with some member duplication and probably
several times more not on any mailing lists.My brother was a programmer for four decades most of which were before the Internet, many before programmers
had keyboards let alone access shortcut keys.

Then there are amateurs like me who are on lists but not really programmers.

The numbers are a guide only but nevertheless a useful starting point.

I believe Andreas is asking a valid question. It would be kind of a waste
to
spend so much time and effort on a utility that will only help 5 people.
If
this is a graduate school thesis or research project or something similar,
the more people he can state he is helping the better a case he can make
for
funding and such. I say there are hundreds of programmers that would
benefit
from his work and possibly hundreds more in the future that will also
benefit from the development of such accessibility by his research team.
C'mon guys, wink wink, nudge nudge.

I don't want a member list. My research lab is looking to determine
approximately how many blind computer programmers are even out there
at all. The NFB tells me it doesn't take statistics on it, neither do
equivalent organizations in england or canada.


Asking for raw membership numbers, unconnected to individuals, doesn't
seem particularly intrusive to me ...
