Silverlight 2, Accessibility, Section 508, etc.


During my recent Silverlight 2 talks, I have had a handful of questions around building Section 508 compliant applications with Silverlight 2.  I've mentioned that the accessibility features are not in the current beta, but they are coming.  If you are interested in learning a little bit about what is coming, then check out the video at http://visitmix.com/blogs/Joshua/Silverlight-2-Accessibility-with-Mark-Rideout/ for details.  As the video mentions, if you want to get a head start, you just need to look into UI Automation from WPF since Silverlight will use the same approach.
