Could a specific collection be established for people with speech and/or communication disorders?

Australian Disability is a charitable organisation dedicated to fairness, dignity and equality for people living with disabilities.

We were founded in 2012 based on the principle that discrimination and stigma

but also the culture towards disability have to change and be reshaped and

owned by people living with the daily effects, positive and negative, of disability.

It is only through an authentic conversation about disability affairs, only then is a

dialogue created and the catalyst for change ignited and given an avenue to

ignite social advancement.

​Our core values include:

Fairness which involves creating a society based on equity of opportunity for all people with disabilities, carers, family and friends.

Equality for all people with disabilities, carers, family and friends by working at a societal, community and governmental level to create systemic and meaningful change to achieve equality in all aspects of their lives by advocating for proactive and long-term sustainable changes, by creating a more accessible and inclusive society for all who live in Australia while alsoacknowledging the unique challenges presented by Indigenous Australians, Culturally and Linguistically backgrounds.

Dignity for All enshirined through all services and activities we undertake as an organisation respects the inherent human rights and treats all people with the same tolerance and respect that anyone would expect if the disability was not a factor in their life.

Accountability and Transparency – all services and activities we undertake as an organisation respects the inherent human rights and dignity for all people with disabilities, carers, family and friends.

We would like to assist Mozilla in creating a special collection from people who have speech and/or communication disorders and to create an open-source speech recognition engine to be freely distributed through Mozilla and via our website.
