'I am very happy to announce that Red Hat has just hired Lukas Tyrychtr, who is a blind software engineer, to lead our effort in making sure Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Workstation has excellent accessibility support!'

The backstory with Sun is nice to reread in such a way.

A lot of kudos to Willie Walker and Joanmarie Diggs who I have very positive memories of their mails from the orca mailinglist. And of course all others helping.

Lets hope we, as a community, have learned to keep the bus factor high and thanks and kudos to RedHat for taking the lead.

Backstory from 2010

Good Luck Lukas!

@be Oh btw for quite some time, there's another awesome blind software engineer working at security compliance . Congrats to you both Lukáš and Vojta.
