Re: Orca Other browsers (was Re: is now crashing Firefox 3.0)

I think having a discussion regarding other browsers is a good thing, but we need to keep the bigger picture in mind: there is actually a team of people dedicated specifically to the internals of Firefox accessibility. I don't know of any other browser that has this dedication. We need to make sure we keep the communication open with this team and keep feeding them bugs and enhancements to work on. It's very frustrating right now for all three sides (Firefox developers, Orca developers, and users), but we have the potential to do a good job if we remain focused.

Hi all,
first a tip: Type:
aptitude search string
if you want to know, whether a certain program exists in Ubuntu. String
could be a part of a name.
Regarding Epiphany: Where's the advantage? A first test resulted in only
a few methods to view a page: Using tab and Shift+Tab is one, flat
review the other. But no further navigation, no caret browsing, no
hotkeys to navigate on certain elements, such as headings links etc.
The settings menu is rather small, and there are no accessibility
Maybe an alternative for low visioned persons, who can partially use the
mouse. But I guess they can also use Firefox a little better than
completely blind persons.
