At the heart of Gecko's accessibility architecture are the cross-platform nsIAccessible interfaces.

The goal is that these interfaces be a cross-platform representation of the abilities of the OS-specific implementations.

Mac implementation in progress

Right now we're working to make Gecko accessible on Mac. We have colored these tables to make it easier to see what the Mac APIs lack and what they support. If you're a programmer, and want to know more about Universal Access, there's a short introduction and quick reference, and even a discussion which compares ATK interfaces and UA functionality here at the wiki.

Comparing the accessibility architectures

When implementing support for a new system in our cross-platform accessibility architecture we need to make sure that it measures up to the standard of the other implementations.

Below you'll find comparisons of the API features of every platform, side by side.
