First, there's a really valuable and important accessibility thread for us
on the Blind Math mailing list. It's deeply rooted in real-world problems
and solutions. Mainly it's Jonathan Godfrey's response to Brandon Bigg's
query: Tutorial on Using RMarkdown?

In tomorrow's (Thursday) TeX Hour I'll share my initial thoughts on an
architecture for accessible typesetting. This will be a technical session,
focused on having control over what happens whenever input text is added to
TeX's horizontal list for the current paragraph. Last year a similar TeX
Hour conversation led to the concept of a Portable TeX Document, so
finger's crossed for tomorrow. All welcome.

Meetings are Thursday 6:30 to 7:30pm UK(=GMT) time. UK time now:

The TeX Hour continues to evolve. I hope at least once a month to have a
special guest to talk with us about an important topic. Nelson is the first
one this month (unless I immodestly count myself). I you'd like me to
invite someone, or volunteer yourself, just contact me.

 And we're enlarging the list of topics for the monthly cycle of B, A, C,
D, E. These letters now stand for
