Lynx as accessibility tool


Lynx has for many years been - the - open source accessibility tool, perhaps even a decade.

However since firefox, opera and safari all now support SVG natively one may expect that developers may produce content.
without a suitable accessibility tool the evidence is that accessibility is ignored as mentioned by David Woolley earlier in this thread around February.

It's my hope, which I believe is shared by Thomas that Lynx will maintain the premier position that has.
He had agreed with me that monthly reminders were appropriate.

I trust this matter is now explained to your satisfaction?

did you investigate SVG language?
that is there is little or no text mark up.

is stripping out the title and text content that difficult a task?
could you indicate which part is causing a problem?

Mr. Dickey has other concerns beyond Lynx.  If this is such an important
feature to you, consider sponsoring its development.  I'm sure he'd be happy
to incorporate a useful patch such as this.  But don't expect others to give
you neat features for free just because you want them.
