Samuel Thibault

Samuel Thibault has been working on accessibility since 2002, when with a blind colleague they designed the BrlAPI client/server braille output engine, now commonly used for braille support in the Gnome desktop. Starting from the work of Mario Lang on the Brltty screen reader, Samuel pushed the existing non-official accessible installer into the official Etch installer, and by inheritance into the Ubuntu alternate CD.
