Here is some sad news, communicated to the members of UK TUG by Joseph

Hi

Tomorrow's TeX Hour continues from last month's topic: Better Technical
Documentation.

Date and time: Thursday 17 March, 6:30 to 7:30pm UK (and UTC) time.
UK time now: https://time.is/UK.
Zoom URL:

Last month's meeting was based on a "needs discovery" meeting organised by
Daniele Procida, who I've met several times at UK Python conferences.
Daniele is now one of several Directors of Engineering at Canonical, the
developers of Ubuntu Linux, where he has special responsibility for
improving both documentation and the process by which it is created.

Interfaces (CLI)
2. Discussion of Text User Interfaces (TUI), and in particular

3. Visually impaired programmers and Python syntax errors, eg
https://bugs.python.org/issue46910
4. Accessible 'screen-shots' of CLI interaction and source files in HTML
