the biggest complaint I would have is that it is being built to a non
standard standard. that is the NFB standard rather than something more
universal like the WAI guidelines.

also of course the problem is that it is being designed to work with a
specific browser/screen reader rather than screen readers in general
(NFB gets a substantial donation from the software makers)
