 	  <p>To provide access to desktop GUI applications, assistive   technologies originally used heuristic techniques to determine the   meaning of the user interface and built an alternative off screen model.   For example, a row of labels displayed horizontally near the top of an   application window might be a menu. Labels with a border drawn around   them might be buttons. Heuristic techniques are not always accurate,   however, and require assistive technologies to be updated whenever the   software application is updated.</p>
 	  <p>A much better technique is for the software application to   provide the necessary information for interoperability with assistive   technology. To meet this need, platform owners have developed   specialized interfaces, called accessibility <abbr title="Application Programming Interfaces">APIs</abbr>, which can be used to communicate accessibility information about user interfaces to assistive technologies. </p>
 	  <p>In the case of static Web pages, the Document Object Model (DOM) is   used to represent the structure and state of the elements in the   document being rendered by a user agent. The elements of the document   are organized into a hierarchy of nodes known as the <abbr title="document object model">DOM</abbr> tree. For traditional static Web pages, assistive technologies, such as screen readers, interact with user agents using the <abbr title="Document Object Model">DOM</abbr>.   For UI elements that are known to be interactive, such as HTML form   elements and desktop applications, assistive technologies may use   platform accessibility APIs.	  </p>
