Adobe expanding the accessibility of Acrobat and Flash!

Posted under Accessibility and PDF & Accessibility in the News & Developer & Development
Written by: Jeff Singleton

This week I am attending the International Technology & Persons with Disabilities Conference in San Diego.

Today I sat in on the the “Assistive Technology Access to Flash and PDF” session presented by Matt May from Adobe Systems.

There it was announced that the next release of Acrobat, Acrobat Reader, Flash Player and Flex will support the iAccessible2 API. MSAA is what these products currently use which limits the accessible API to Windows platforms. This is great news as this will expand accessibility for these products beyond the Windows platform and allow users of OS2 and Linux to make use of the accessibility features in these products.

If you are not sure what iAccessible2 is, Peter Korn’s Weblog has a great explanation at: http://blogs.sun.com/korn/entry/completing_the_accessibility_picture_iaccessible2.

In addition to the support of iAccessible2, Adobe is planning on including support for the ARIA specifications in the near future for Flash Player and Flex. This will make it easier for developers to expose Flash content to assistive technologies.

It sure is nice to see advancements like this being made in these products. The hope is that the industry as a whole will follow Adobe’s example!

If you happen to be at this conference, feel free to stop by the HiSoftware booth #108 and say ‘hello’ as that is where I’ll be hanging out!
