Any updates to support docs for 3.5?

Chris Ilias-2
There are 4 articles on support.mozilla.com created by the a11y team:

<http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Accessibility?bl=n>
<http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Assistive+technology+compatibility?bl=n>
<http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Firefox+3+with+Screen+Readers+FAQ?bl=n>
<http://support.mozilla.com/kb/New+Accessibility+features+in+Firefox+3?bl=n>

I just want to remind you about them, just in case they need to be
updated for Firefox 3.5.

Are the above articles still needed?
If so, do they need to be updated for Firefox 4 (aside from renaming one
of them)?

Hi, Chris.

Some comments:

1. http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Accessibility?bl=n

1.1 HTML Access keys: shift + ctrl + key instead of ctrl + key. These
keyboard shortcuts are platform dependent, it should been said.
1.2 Add a section how to show menu bar (via preferences or by alt key)

2. http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Assistive+technology+compatibility?bl=n

This should be extended by that Firefox is supported by NVDA, JAWS, Windows
Eyes, Supernova, System Access, Cobra (Windows) and Orca (Linux) screen
readers. It's worth to provide links to these screen readers.

4.
http://support.mozilla.com/kb/New+Accessibility+features+in+Firefox+3?bl=n

The performance improvement should be pointed here, as well more correct web
content mapping to accessibility APIs. The Firefox 4 accessibility support
is so different from Firefox 3 as Firefox 3 was different from Firefox 2.
Somebody of us should come with right wording for this.

Actually I'd love to see Marco to run through these articles and comment
them.

Thank you.
Alex.

Actually on windows, the modifiers are alt+shift which is stated in the
article. On other platforms, they are different. I'm not sure what they are
on other platforms.
