When it comes to technology, persons with disabilities are really a lot like all other technology users because they generally seek to perform the same
tasks as any other technology users. In addition, many disabled users rely on assistive technologies to provide access to the GUI desktop environment in
order to read email, browse the world wide web, balance their financial accounts, entertain themselves or perform their work duties--just like other
desktop users. We are very glad, therefore, that the Free Standards Group has organized an effort to provide the necessary standards to support the
accommodations that users with disabilities require through standards that developers can adopt and implement across their product portfolios.
