Just thought I'd chime in here. I spent a bit of time searching for
funding to work on Caribou after the ATRC  / IDRC cut funding for my
position. The feedback I received was a similar story; the potential
funders seemed only interested in an applications that would serve
their users who primarily use Windows. Obviously this will be an issue
when searching for funding for GNOME a11y projects - especially new
projects that don't have an established group of users like Caribou.

Cheers, Ben
