Due to my recent issues with JavaScript and screen readers, such as JAWS, I
contacted Freedom Scientific about what they can do about making their
software more web accessible. I think a certain function in JS is wonderful
("document.write()") as it enables the screen to be re-written without
opening a new window or having to duplicate the webpage. The only thing is
to make it readable by screen readers. Freedom Scientific wrote me back
saying they are gathering information on the subject and talking to their
senior tech specialist. I'm also going to contact Java on the matter.
Updates to come.
