Our friend and colleague, Cynthia Ice, passed away earlier this week.She was an accessibility expert and tester-- a tireless advocate foraccessibility for Lotus Notes and other products, starting with Notes 5I believe.
Every blind user of Lotus products, and every salesperson who has towork with accounts that require accessibility, owe Cynthia Ice a greatdebt. Her work is described a bit in the following
article in USA Today.
Her life had great purpose-- to make software usable for people withdisabilities. Please help her to continue to accomplish her purpose byfixing an accessibility bug in her honor.
All you Notes app devs around the world -- if all your databasesare 100% accessible, that's great. But chances are, they are not. So take a few minutes to make sure that all your menu items havemnemonics (underlined access keys), or that a screen reader reads yourform in the proper order.
IBM developers -- take a look at your spr queues and see if you haveany accessibility ones, and see if you can find some extra time to fixone -- for Cynthia.
