Silverlight Accessibility

I’ve been thinking a lot about Silverlight, and accessibility lately.

These were useful links I found that show how to and not to create your silverlight applications, or silverlight controls.

BTW Microsoft have also made available a reference application (that also appears to be useful!) to read Daisy format eBook files, it’s called Buttercup Reader. See http://www.buttercupreader.net/

The code for Buttercup Reader is available on Codeplex:

This article from Code Magazine was also helpful to me, though written some time ago and for Silverlight 2, it still has many useful tips:

W3C.org has this report on Silverlight 2.0 accessibility:
