Some governments and large companies have specific criteria for procuring software. By following standardized procedures for documenting the compatibility of KDE with accessibility technology, KDE software will be a much better candidate for users with special needs. == Communicating with the team == There are many ways to get in touch with the team:<br /> The team discusses activities on the [https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-accessibility kde-acessibility mailing list]. You can learn more about mailing lists [https://kde.org/support/#mailinglists here].<br /> The team also meets at <nowiki>#kde-accessibility</nowiki> on [https://community.kde.org/Matrix Matrix] and [irc://irc.kde.org/kde-accessibility IRC]. You can learn more about IRC [https://kde.org/support/#irc here.]<br /> Also, see a [https://accessibility.kde.org/contact/ list of people currently working on the project]. Don't be afraid to contact us! == First Steps & Current Projects == The main activities of the project include assessing and improving the accessibility features of KDE. This is described at the [https://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/Accessibility KDE Accessibility HOWTO]. Our work is tracked on Phabricator. See [https://phabricator.kde.org/project/view/249/ the Accessibility project] and feel free to become a watcher or a member! There's always plenty to do. Another avenue is to just open the help section for any piece of KDE software. There are lots of opportunities to find and replace outdated screenshots or make sure that descriptions in the text are consistent with the interface of the software it is documenting. If you start with this, it should be simple to fix and commit your first contribution! You are also free to simply provide insight or report any accessibility issues you might encounter with KDE software to the team. Any help is appreciated! == Mentorship program == Getting started in a big project can be hard.
