Someone noticed that there was no participation between the open printing
standards group and the accessibility group.
The open printing group was founded to improve and standardize printing
under Linux. Currently, there are five groups that are active within open
job ticket group that describes all of a print job's options to
control output and provides accounting information
printer driver API group that describes how applications and
operating systems talk to a printer driver
spooler group that describes how a print job is spooled
vector language group that describes how high level drawing is sent
to a printer driver
bi-directional communications group that describes how printer status
information is received from a printer
Currently, I see two areas of concern. The first is command line options
for the standards. The second is dialogs that the standards will use.
We hold weekly architecture calls on Thursdays. We are working on use case
scenarios for printing under Linux. This would be a good time to define
some use case scenarios that involve accessibility.
I know this is too little of a warning for today's meeting, but feel free
to join any meeting or just send notes our mailing list
printing-architecture at freestandards.org .
