Flex Development and Accessibilities: Getting Started

Leave a comment

Since I have decided to plunge into the dark depths of what is Flex Accessibility Development, I will be posting my findings here and subsequent posts. This is a work-in-progress.

This and subsequent posts will be targeting the following technologies ONLY:

  • Flex 2 (2.0.1 SKD)
  • ActionScript 3.0
  • JAWS 8.0.x
  • Internet Explorer 6.0+

To get started, here are a few helpful links:

What I have found so far:

  • There is not much more documentation (aside from what I have posted above), benchmark tests, usability tests and general developmental progress regarding Flex and Accessibilities.
  • I have yet to find ‘standards’ pertaining to Flex and Accessibilities.
  • JAWS crashes easily from calling Accessibility.updateProperties() too often.
