A few weeks ago, I blogged about
The Second Coming Of The Web.
That article talked about how once Web content was
it immediately became mash-up ready
thereby opening up the way to creating integrated views
of that content.
Earlier this year, I blogged on Google's Official Blog
about how Web-2.0 mashups presented an as yet unleveraged
opportunity for providing accessibility across the Web by
custom views to present content in a form that was optimized to
the end-user's needs. To reiterate --- this is in fact what
Universal Accessibility was always supposed to mean --- rather
than the somewhat short-sighted view that has become prevalent
If it works with a screenreader it's accessible.
Note however that there is nothing Fire Vox specific about this XKCD mashup or any of the other AxsJAX extensions; all it needs is a relatively modern Web browser like Firefox that implements W3C ARIA and adaptive technology that has been updated to work with the event notifications raised by conformant AJAX applications.
