Conference Talk Goals


Ingo Klöcker (KDE)


In the beginning of 2022 an assessment of the accessiblity of Kleopatra was performed. Unsurprisingly, Kleopatra didn't score too well. In fact, the accessiblity for blind persons and for motor impaired persons was rated insufficient. Over the course of last year, I have fixed or at least improved many of the findings mentioned in the report. In the follow-up test, that was performed in the beginning of 2023, Kleopatra was rated accessible with minor limitations for visual impaired persons and motor impaired persons.

In this talk I will give a short overview over the problems and how I addressed them with the help of Qt or despite of Qt.


Ingo started working as App Stores Support Engineer for KDE e.V. in September 2022, but has been a part of KDE since 2000. As freelancing software engineer he improves Kleopatra since mid 2020, and in the 00's he has maintained KMail.
