Firebug 1.4.0 Accessibility Features

One of the major advances in Firebug 1.4.0 is comprehensive accessibility support. This includes:

  • Navigation and activation of all Firebug controls through keys alone. (Tools > Firebug > Enable Accessibility Enhancements)
  • Focus indications in the UI
  • Key-command rebinding support. (Tools > Firebug > Customize Shortcuts)
  • Support for screen readers for visually impaired developers.

There area already two excellent posts about this feature:

Plus this is just a start, Mozilla will be supporting development of Firebug tools for developers to apply in creating accessible web sites.

Thanks again to Hans for this great feature.


Please post followups to the newsgroup.
