That said, some of the AJAX sites that I've come across can be fairly accessible, especially if you are a fairly experienced user of your screen reader of choice and understand how its browse mode buffer (presuming that's what it is using to get the data) works. My experiences with Window Eyes would indicate this might not be as hopeless as they make it sound because it doesnt' meet Sec. 508. I don't think Facebook does either.

We got the following answer: What I found is some features in Oracle Application Express 3.0: Developing Web Applications Ed 2 PRV requires the functionality provided by the XMLHTTP (AJAX) and/or DHTML scripting languages, which means that screen readers may not properly interpret screen updates. Because of extensive use of these two scripting languages, the SQL Workshop module is not coded to meet applicable Section 508 standards.

If so do you need the java accessbridge installed to use it? __________ View the list's information and change your settings athttp://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind__________View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind
