There are also a bunch of Opera extensions for accessibility. Although the  
category [1] includes a lot of stuff that *isn't* especially relevant,  
there are some things that are. The following list is the most obvious  
examples I found (and there are others I know of that are not labeled as  
accessibility):
[1]https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/category/accessibility/?language=any

TellMeMore
- provides indication that longdescs are available, and shows them  
associated to thumbnails
https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/details/tellmemore/

Excesskey
- allows for reconfiguration of accesskeys to match what the user finds  
helpful
https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/details/excesskey/

Cleanpages
- improves the readability by de-cluttering the page
https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/details/cleanpages/

MouseTrail
- puts a trail behind the mouse to aid in finding it
https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/details/mouse-trail/

BusComplete
- auto completion for text entry
https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/details/buscomplete/

Greyed
- reduces contrast by making white background grey (there are people who  
want this and with high contrast as the most beneficial default, it's a  
helpful option)
https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/details/grayed/

KeyTitle
- makes title attributes show up when navigating by keyboard
https://addons.opera.com/en/addons/extensions/details/key-title/
