Matthew,

The University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign is developing
plug-ins for Internet Explorer and Mozilla to support improved
navigation and styling of content by people with disabilities.
 Another important use of these tools is to allow developers
to view and navigate content in ways that it may be by people
with disabilities.
