Firefox's current architecture for multi-process accessibility suffers from severe performance issues and is costly and difficult to maintain due to the massively different and specialised approaches necessary on different operating systems. In addition, it is currently impossible to support builtin Windows accessibility tools such as Narrator and Windows Speech Recognition. This project aims to re-architect our multi-process accessibility support to cache the entire accessibility trees for all content processes within the parent process.
Jamie, Morgan, and Eitan meet weekly to discuss this project. You can find the meeting notes in this google doc.
