$15,000 from Mozilla Foundation and the F123.org-Mais Diferenças

The GNOME Project announced that Mozilla is supporting Gnome's accessibility work (a11y) with a US$ 10,000 grant, and the F123-Mais Diferenças partnership pitched in $5,000. The announcement says that the F123.org-Mais Diferenças partnership awarded the grant for "...Gnome's design and implementation of cursor and focus tracking on the eZoom module of Compiz fusion, and other accessibility improvements in GNOME to benefit persons with low vision and other disabilities and that Mozilla is helping to fund improvements in the Orca screen reader."

Gnome used a previous Mozilla grant this year for accessibility to participate in the CSUN Conference.
