GNOME accessibility developers concerned about Oracle’s commitment

There are concerns in the GNOME accessibility development community about what the Oracle takeover of Sun means for the efforts led by Sun’s Accessibility Project Office (APO). Orca project lead Willie Walker has been laid off and is looking for work, possibly in areas that will not allow him to continue contributing to Orca. In addition, assistive technology specialist Joanmarie Diggs has published an open letter to Oracle concerning the future of the APO and its work.
