Keyboard: It looks like we're getting that much needed DHTML/Ajax keyboard support for Safari/WebKit. Thanks go to Alice Liu et al. for making it possible for us to set tabindex on any DOM element. [bug 7138]
ARIA: WebKit has also joined Firefox2+, Opera9.5+, and IE8 in adding support for WAI-ARIA, the W3C draft specification for making DHTML (Ajax) accessible. Thanks go to Beth Dakin et al. for the initial implementation of basic ARIA roles. [bug 12132]
In related news, I had a nice chat with Alp Toker late this afternoon over on #a11y (irc.gimp.net). He's going to donate time to help drive the work on the Linux accessibility atk/at-spi backend for WebKit. Alp is a WebKit/GTK+ ninja so this is outstanding.
I appreciate the heads up today Maciej.
Thanks for reading.
