There I was thinking that, "Listbox, unspecified" was a bit ambiguous,
when all the time it was perfectly accessible. The same for all the
"colon combo box" announcements I hear when I try to use Bugzilla.
It's strange that there's nothing in WCAG 2.0 that suggests people may
write to you in the hope you will do things on their behalf, being
considered equivalent access; maybe they never thought of it? I
thought Bugzilla was very inaccessible, but it's reassuring that you
and Sam don't consider the barrier to be very high. I take it you
didn't come to that conclusion using assistive technologies or
assessing Bugzilla against WCAG 2.0. I hope I can trust the person
that's going to do things on my behalf with my banking.
