DHTML Accessibility on the W3C Roadmap

As my talented coworker Bill Scott pointed out recently, an exciting area of development aims to make DHTML, Ajax, and Rich Internet Applications (RIA) accessible to the widest possible audience.

Information and examples here: http://www.mozilla.org/access/dhtml/

I’ll have a lot more to say about this soon. In the meantime, I’m very happy to see that this great work (by IBM) has made it onto the public W3C WAI roadmap:

  1. WAI Dynamic Accessible Web Content Roadmap 0.21
  2. States and Adaptable Properties Module
  3. Role Taxonomy for Accessible Adaptable Applications

Stay tuned!
