RE: Netscape and screen readers

I believe Mozilla.org has ceased development of the Mozilla browser. Maybe
they have migrated this screen-reader development to operate with FireFox?
Otherwise this would be a dead end.

I always enjoy a good rumor. However, I did find some information
on the GW Micro website, and all it says is:


Window-Eyes 5.0 is proud to be the first screen reader to include
robust support for the Mozilla web browser, a popular alternative to
Internet Explorer."

I believe the support was to be for Mozilla 1.8x, but all I can find
on the Mozilla.org website are public releases of 1.7.7, so I am guessing
that the Window-Eyes support for Mozilla 1.8x is for those individuals
comfortable with betas.
