Yes, I like that idea and a similar suggestion was given by a few people who
gave comments off list over the last few days.
I think a tutorial type recording covering the use of a few applications
would be very useful.
I'll be in a better position to start work on this in September as I am only
using SuSE at the moment and it's far from my distribution of choice as I'm
constantly fighting with dependencies.

Thanks for posting this! I listened to it half-on-half-off while
working my way through e-mail. As such, I wasn't listen critically for
accuracy and such, but I got the general idea of what you were doing. I
think you have a pleasant presentation style.
I also think this kind of thing could be very useful, and I could
imagine a periodic audio tutorial from you on how to use specific
applications (e.g., those listed in
http://live.gnome.org/Orca/AccessibleApps). We could keep links to the
audio tutorials from the AccessibleApps page, and also work to keep the
textual information on each page in sync. I imagine it would help a
large number of people.
