No, it isn't. It is akin to Flash - a client side technology needing a 
plugin from Microsoft. I've always dismissed it out of hand for 
supporting fewer platforms (both for clients and for development 
environments) then Flash does. I never reached the point of bothering to 
see how accessible the results could be.
