Open Accessibility (A11y) Workgroup

Open A11y Workgroup's Mission Statement

First chartered in 2004 as the Linux Foundation Accessibility Workgroup (LFA), the Open Accessibility (A11y) Group functions today within the Linux Foundation to establish free and open standards that enable comprehensive universal access to various computing platforms, applications, and services. Open A11y makes it easier for developers, ISVs, and distributions to support assistive technologies (AT). Assistive technologies enable individuals to make full use of computer-based technology despite variability in physical or sensory abilities due to illness, aging or disability.

AT enables individuals who are blind or visually impaired to read online text, for example, and provides the means for individuals who do not have the use of their arms and hands to write and correspond. AT also enable individuals who cannot speak or hear to participate on the telephony interfaces of today -- and will support their participation on the multimodal computer interfaces of tomorrow.

The Haney Energy Saving Group: Common Sense Energy-Savings Tips, and then Some

Here are some:

• Do more outdoor grilling than other cooking choices. It may not be so good on your lungs or nose and the neighbours might complain; but it saves you a lot by sparing your oven or stove from high energy costs.

Axis Capital Group Review: Technology Soars Forward

In the beginning of the new millennium, the construction equipment market seemed to be at a crossroads, as existing equipment technology gets hold of a highpoint and new technologies started to arise. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the engine designs developing from regulatory tiers put in place to regulate diesel emissions. New and more highly engineered power sources have materialized with each tier, allowing equipment performance and functionality that some would have called impossible a decade ago. 

Payday Loan Direct - immediate Money in the Bank Account

In the layman's language, we could define payday loans directly as those money advances that get deposited directly at the borrower's bank accounts. You must be recognizable with payday loans....those are short termed loans usually given for the period of 1 to 3 weeks and were expected to be reimbursed back on that next payday of borrowers. These individual loans come handy at times of urgent money requirements and critical situations.
