Re: Fw: Regarding an accessible component archive for MooTools that is specifically programmed to be as accessible as possible for screen reader and keyboard only users.

At their core, DOM manipulation, rendering, AJAX requests, CSS selector 
querying, and so on, there isn't really an impactful difference between them 
regarding accessibility. There are slight differences, like the DOM update 
issue I mentioned experiencing in Dojo at times, but nothing else that I 
could find.

The main issue having to do with the accessibility of these 
libraries/frameworks, has to do with the programmatic accessibility of 
component implementations, which, when you add all of the third party 
variants with differing levels of accessibility, equates to thousands of 
implementation types across the web that may or may not actually be 
accessible.

So it's not the core rendering that is the problem, it's the manner in which 
the components are programmed.
