IBM donating DHTML accessibility code to Firefox



Firefox 1.5 will have DHTML accessibility code donated from IBM. DHTML is code that makes some of the dynamic web pages like google maps as interactive with desktop-like application responsiveness. The accessibility code will help pages be narrated to the viewer, or magnified for easier reading. Also it will assist in navigating pages using the keyboard as opposed to the mouse.



This accessibility code is targeted at those with visual and motor disabilities.
