Response from the Working Group
================================
Thank you for this information. We have updated the user agent notes to say:

Voiceover 4.0, NVDA 2012, Orca 2.32.0, and Zoomtext 10.0 (and their earlier
versions) do not support the <code>longdesc</code> attribute. JAWS 13 and
WindowEyes 7.5 do support this attribute, but some older versions do not.
