Welcome to the accessibility forum!
With the release of Ubuntu 6.06 we have some basic assistive technology components in place, but there are still rough edges and work to be done. I hope that this new support forum can help new users of Ubuntu get set up with a working system and where needed help work around some of the known limitations in the current offering.
This should also be a useful place to give feedback about where we are at currently and what feature enhancements we need for future versions. More technical discussions about new feature development will likely continue on the mailing list, in the wiki and the specification tracker in launchpad.
And finally, I'd like to thank the forum staff for setting up this forum section for access questions!
