Linux desktop and blind users - can we improve it?

I believe that open source Linux distribution should be open to anyone. This includes also visually impaired people as well as blind people such as me.

Although the Linux ecosystem contains many tools which make it accessible to blind and visually impaired people, the learning curve and the support still lacks behind other operating systems.
I would like to change it. But I can't do it without you; developers, packagers, testers, UX designers - the community. If this sounds like something that interests you, feel free to join this session.

What will you get to know here?
- how do blind people interact with desktop environment?
- what are some common problems they face?
- what is my attempt at improving the situation? (spoiler: Fedora Remix)
- how can you help to improve the situation?

Session chairs: Zdenek Dohnal and Lucie Vrtelova
