Accessibility help for knew OS

Willy Sam
KolibriOS is a tiny yet incredibly powerful and fast operating system.
This power requires only a few megabyte disk space and 8MB of RAM to
run. Kolibri features a rich set of applications that include word
processor, image viewer, graphical editor, web browser and well over
30 exciting games. Full FAT12/16/32 support is implemented, as well as
read-only support for NTFS, ISO9660 and Ext2/3/4. Drivers are written
for popular sound, network and graphics cards.
Have you ever dreamed of a system that boots in less than 10 seconds
from power-on to working GUI, on $100 PC? Applications that start
instantly, immediately after clicking an icon, without annoying
hourglass pointers? This speed is achieved since the core parts of
KolibriOS (kernel and drivers) are written entirely in FASM assembly
language!

I have asked the KolibriOS team to insert accessibility features to there OS.
They have responded well, but need technical help as they state below.
"Hello! Thank you for your reply. We are very interested in
implementing of Accessibility standards, but we don't sure what
exactly do we need to implement.
As for now, we have only Magnify (not very useful though) and Speak
engine (not very good though). Do we need add something else? Do we
need some text-to-speech interface for software? May be something
else? We are really want to help, I think it's possible to create even
brand new branch (we already have few, why not?) with suitable desktop
environment and programs. What do you say?"
Please help to make this new ausum free and open source OS accessible
for all, by providing nolige or adapting software to be compatible
with Kolibri.
