A new, free, open source accessibility test tool is also in development called accprobe. I encourage developers to try it out and provide feedback to the Eclipse ACTF team.

I had not reported on IAccessible2 adoption recently. I was pleased to see Stephen Partridge's blog posting of Adobe Acrobat investigating support for IAccessible2. This is sure to improve the accessibility of Adobe Acrobat. This is exciting news given the recent IAccessible2 Request for Comment. IAccessible2 is an enhancement to the Windows Accessibility API Microsoft Active Accessibility. It bring the Windows platform capability in line with Linux. IAccessible2 is a proven technology with strong implementations in the recently released Firefox 3 and Lotus Symphony.
