I'd say that statement about support being limited to Window-Eyes and Fireox
is generally accurate, Sean, but maybe not entirely - I think it depends on
the widget. Todd Kloots of Yahoo! joined Doug Geoffray of GW Micro
(developer of Window-Eyes) in a presentation at the recent Web Accessibility
Capacity Building Institute in Seattle. Interested folks should look over
their presentation materials.

The proceedings are here:

And slides and examples from Todd's and Doug's presentation can be found on
this Resources page:

Coincidentally (given the earlier discussion on this list today about
PowerPoint options), note that Todd's and Doug's slides are available in
three formats: original Powerpoint, XHTML (LecShare), and PDF (as Dan
Berkowitz suggested). Maybe the answer to this morning's question is:
*provide choices*.
