Hello,

I encountered this article:

http://www.standards-schmandards.com/index.php?2004/11/22/8-fangs-release-05

The author is developing a free screen reader emulation for Firefox. I don't
know if this will ever be useful for people with disabilities, because it
would have to interface with a speech synthesizer. But even if that doesn't
happen it could still be a nice tool for developers to get a feel of how
their website would appear to people who depend on text only without
reverting to Lynx.

The website has some other interesting articles about accessibility as well:
http://www.standards-schmandards.com. It feels funny to forward articles
from a domainname like that to a standards organization though :-)

For you Americans out there: Happy thanksgiving & have some turkey for me
tomorrow!
