Subject: Accessible User Agent Developments of Note

 

A couple of interesting news items in the accessible user agent world worth
mentioning here.

 

Yahoo Funding NVDA Development

 

I noticed on the NVDA blog that Yahoo is now providing them some funding.
You can read the details at
http://www.nvda-project.org/blog/YahooSupportsNVDA.

 

>From the blog posting, initial work will be for some further ARIA support
and table navigation in HTML documents.

 

Firefox 3.5 Accessibility Improvements

 

A blog post at
http://www.marcozehe.de/2009/06/26/new-accessibility-features-in-firefox-3-5
/ details many of the accessibility improvements expected in FF 3.5. Give
this a read.  Improved access to text attributes when editing, better DHTML
support, accessibility to parts of the HTML5 audio and video embedded
controls and improved ARIA support are a few of the items mentioned.
