Discussion:
Testing Review
 * Testing will be faster and easier in 12.04 (less breaks we hope).
 * Better profiles for testing will land, including a new deaf profile.
 * Plus, on site usability testing by Penelope is in the pipeline.
 * Charlie will prioritize a11y bugs.
LD
 * Not much work done yet in learning or cognitive disabilities.
 * For some types of dyslexia, compiz colors could be improved or customized.
 * No voluntary personas have dealt with cognitive disabilities. We have had to chase such personas down.
 * Universal spell checkers?
 * Repeating timer would help ADHD users focus
Documentation plans
    are the personas finally done?
     - alanbell says "no; Faisal and Daniella are done"
    installer
     - no specific a11y documentation
    any differences needed between 2D & 3D
    - Luke is trying to get these all unified
    indicators
     - don't need to worry about it; it's not quite ready enough yet
    anything else?

Accessibility From the Start
 * New blog by Penelope, aimed at developers & other
 * Mental shift
RSI
 * Typing break was dropped from GNOME 3
 * Work Rave is an alternative (though not available for 11.10; is before and after)
