Hello all!

I would be delighted!

my name is Marco, and I've been working at Mozilla for almost six years, filling out the role of accessibility quality assurance engineer and accessibility evangelist. Some of you may already have read articles from me on my blog

I mainly work on accessibility for Firefox, both desktop and Android, and now also Firefox OS, where I also take part in decisions involving the user experience for visually impaired users, and hopefully users with other disabilities in the future as well.

Having worked at Freedom Scientific, the makers of JAWS, before I joined Mozilla, I also have a strong background in screen reader technology and know how these interact with accessibility APIs. This knowledge helps a lot in defining and redefining how web accessibility can, or should, work, with the user always at the centre of everything I do and think of.

OK, I think that's enough rambling for an introduction. ;)

Look forward to working with you all!
