Hi everyone,
Recently on the blinux discussion list, someone pointed out an aspect of WaCG 2.0, that might?
Be incorporated into lynx.
Certainly I understand why java script is not incorporated. still, I share the idea below, wondering if this might be done, and if not why not? Lynx is a fluid quality and expanding browser, with a reputation deserving of respect.
If this factor could be added the benefits for millions  would be great.
Here is part of the details.

1.)     It's great to see Lynx still being updated for what can
reasonably be supported. I say it that way because adding javascript
support would be a massive, and unending task, i.e. I can show you sites
where current Firefox and current Google Chrome don't work, but Chrome
Canary does work.

2.)     The W3C/WAI approach for making dynamic scripted content, i.e.
javascript accessible is ARIA:

Adding aria support to lynx might be a reasonable addition for someone
to take on. It would be a much more achievable objective than supporting
all of javascript.
