Re: Iggdrasil, a new amazing screenreader

Considering that most of Orca's development seems to be taken up by an
endless game of whack-a-mole where some website or application does
something stupid that makes it inaccessible or at least harder to use
than it should be, someone reports the issue on the Orca mailing list,
and then the Orca dev comes up with a work around for that bit of bad
design, I'd have to agree that the screen reader is probably the
smallest part of the overall problem.

Of course, filing accessibility bugs or even presenting patches that
address accessibility bugs does no good if whoever decides which
contributions makes it into official releases deems such bugs
unimportant or refuses to let those patches into the releases... and
convincing enough of the right people that good design is accessible
design and inaccessible design is bad design that this principle
becomes industry standard and something taught in every Programming
101 and Web Design 101 course is a social engineering problem of epic
