ARIA Support Makes Google Reader More AccessibleGeneral Tuesday, March 25th, 2008
Google Reader has added support for ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) which is a standard for accessibility of web 2.0 applications. The addition of ARIA will make Google Reader more accessible to visually impaired who will be able use any screen reader for for full spoken feedback. The ARIA support in Google Reader works with
- Fire Vox The self-voicing extension to Firefox
- Firefox 3 with JFW 8.0 and Window-Eyes 5.5
- Portable Firefox 3 with both JFW 8.0 and Window-Eyes 5.5
Google Reader has always been my favorite RSS feed reader with a simple interface and some very intuitive features. With ARIA support, Google Reader will surely extend its reach to more users and make life for them easier.
