Re: (OT): Welcome to Windows-access and Windows mailing lists

For the record, Joseph Lee has stepped down as owner/moderator of the Windows 10 list and turned it over to two very knowledgable Windows 10 users to co-moderate.  I agree with you that we don't need yet another Windows list, let alone two of them.  Didn't there used to be a Blind-Windows list that discussed all versions of Windows?  Whatever happened to it?

There is already a Windows 10 users group either owned or moderated by Joseph Lee.  Starting another list may result in people joining a new list where the kind of knowledge and expertise isn’t present where they might join the Joseph Lee group otherwise.

Subject: [TechTalk] (OT): Welcome to Windows-access and Windows mailing lists

Dear all,
As we all eagerly wait for the release of new Windows OS (most probably #Windows11) I would like to invite you all to windows-access mailing list.
To explain more about this, I'll be running 2 mailing lists related to Windows. 1 is called "windows-access" and another is "windows".
Windows-access is there for any discussion regarding which includes Windows OS and it's accessibility including screen reader compattibility, applications and all.
Second mailing list: "windows" is a generalised mailing list which can be joined by anyone no matter he/she is sighted/blind and it allows any discussion revolving around Windows.
If you specificly want to talk about the accessibility of Windows OS and don't want to mingle up with the conversation of non-accessibility conversations, then you can join exclusive windows-access mailing list
and to post to this list:
Otherwise you can join generalised windows mailing list which is there for everyone:
Send a mail to post to this list:
welcome you all in the both groups in advance.
with regards,
