Consists of domain experts (disabled users) working together with local FOSS resource persons.
The morning session is facilitated by a domain expert and they come up with a framework for evaluating FOSS software with regards to accessibility for visually disabled users. In the afternoon, the FOSS facilitator takes over and demonstrates the various FOSS solutions that are available. The domain experts are guided (hands on) on the different FOSS solutions and gives scores and feedback to the tools using the morning’s framework.
