@AndjelaM., Sakthi993, Kaartic, DrMel, and Nishantgadihoke: Hi folks, thanks for your interest in working on this idea. I've added some prompts to the page to request a little more detail about the project proposal here. I think the rationale behind the idea -- ensuring that our projects are readable to a wider audience, and adding features to increase that accessibility -- is well described. Here are the questions that still need to be answered at this point:

  • What activities will be carried out in this project?
  • How will those activities will help you achieve your stated goals?
  • What specific outcomes do you expect will occur after you've completed the project?
  • You've requested 600 USD of funding-- how will those funds be used? You can describe those costs under the Budget section.

If I can help you think through any of those questions, let me know and I'd be happy to help. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 05:36, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Scusate se scrivo in Italiano: Apprezzo molto il vostro sforzo di rendere i vari progetti Wikimedia più accessibili a persone che presentano vari disagi: anziani, non vedenti, ipovedenti, dislessici.
Se non ho capito male voi siete specializzati per i dilessici. In Italia stiamo cercando di migliorare l'accessibilità soprattutto per i non vedenti/ipovedenti sia mediante sintesi vocale che con ingrandimenti. Molte delle soluzioni proposte sono utili anche ai dislessici. Teniamoci in contatto perchè possiamo aiutarci a vicenda.--Mizardellorsa (talk) 17:25, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
