Information for Assistive Technology Vendors

  1. Accessibility Features in Mozilla & Call for Testers!

    Mozilla now has enough accessibility support that we're reading for early adopters and testers to start giving it a try. Please read this page if you're interested in an alternative accessible browser.

  2. Keyboard documentation

    This lists Mozilla's keyboard docs in a single long document.

  3. Gecko Info for Windows Accessibility Vendors

    Mozilla supports MSAA (Microsoft Active Accessibility) in HTML and in our user interface (based on XUL technology). This makes it possible for the vendors of Windows accessibility software, such as screen readers, voice dictation packages and screen magnifiers to provide support for Mozilla. In addition, we provide some simple interfaces via which we expose a read-only DOM (document object model).

  4. Mozilla Support for Linux/UNIX Assistive Technology Developers

    Mozilla supports the AT-SPI (Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface) in HTML and in our user interface (based on XUL technology). This makes it possible for the developers of Linux and UNIX accessibility software, such as screen readers, voice dictation packages and screen magnifiers to provide support for Mozilla.

Live Chat

Both end users and developers are invited for discussion on the live IRC channel at irc.mozilla.org/#accessibility. Since this is a worldwide effort, there is always a good chance to find someone to chat with there, day or night.

Newsgroup and Mailing List

We have two discussion lists, which can be read via a newsgroup reader, as a mailing list or via Google groups.
