Docs Project guide goals for F14

From FedoraProject

Jump to: navigation, search

Below are the goals for the Docs Project guides for Fedora 14. If you want to help, please reference the [Ownership Chart]. From there, you can find a partner for owned guides in progress and find guides in need of adoption.

Contents

Accessibility Guide

The current structure seems pretty much okay, but I plan to add a significant amount of content for f14, including the following:

  • sections for other desktop environments supported by fedora (xfce, sugar, lxde).
  • information on other tools, such as:
    • dasher (Predictive text) - update: found in f12 branch
    • gok (GNOME Onscreen Keyboard) - update: found in f12 branch - also, note that gok may not be included in GNOME3 GNOME3 release delayed until next year.
    • Indic Onscreen Keyboard, and other virtual keyboard options
    • kttsmgr (Text to Speech) - update: kttsd/kttsmgr now known as jovie
    • basic information on screen resolution tools and sound control.

I am also thinking of mentioning localization (making fedora accessible to people of different countries, languages, cultural backgrounds), and also accessibility for children while they are in the process of developing literacy skills (sugar).

Any other suggestions also welcome!

Fedora Live Images

If the F14 live image exceeds CD size, the guide will need to be updated to reflect this.

Otherwise, should just be a bugfix/maintenance release.

Installation Guide

  • should just be a bugfix/maintenance release for F14, pending any changes in anaconda itself
  • If the liveimage size goes to DVD, guide will need to be updated to reflect this
