IBM and Firefox work towards greater accessibility

This is the kind of news we love to see, as AT professionals, especially if you're a fan of Mozilla's FireFox web browser.

According to an article by Dinesh C. Sharma, (posted on, IBM is donating 50,000 lines of code to Mozilla, in order to make their FireFox web browser more accessible for people with disabilities. The accessibility features will allow the user to have the text narrated, the page magnified, and the page navigated from the keyboard, rather than the mouse.

Bravo to IBM and Mozilla! Keep it comin'!
