This document provides  further information for developers about web accessibility and XUL accessibility.

Web accessibility

ARIA for developers
ARIA enables the accessibility of the dynamic HTML content. Examples using ARIA are live content regions and JavaScript widgets.
Keyboard-navigable JavaScript widgets
Until now, web developers who want to make their styled <div> and <span> based widgets  have lacked the proper techniques. Keyboard accessibility is part of the minimum accessibility requirements which a developer should be aware of.

XUL accessibility

 
Building accessible custom components in XUL
Using  DHTML accessibility techniques to add accessibility to the custom XUL components.
Accessible XUL authoring guidelines
When authored according to these guidelines, XUL is capable of generating accessible user interfaces. Coders, reviewers, designers and QA engineers should be familiar with these guidelines.
