The latest version of the Bindows framework now offers accessibility support in the form of US Government Section-508 requirements for visually impaired users.
With the Accessibility module, developers can make existing and new Bindows applications available to these users with a few simple steps.
Bindows components come with accessibility descriptions and instructions by default, but developers can now also create new accessible custom components or customize the built-in behaviour to comply with various application specific requirements.
Enabling accessibility mode in Bindows provides supports for:
Text-to-speech screen readers: JAWS and Window Eyes
Screen Magnifiers: MAGic
You can test an application via the Bindows Accessibility test application with IE only.
There is also a developers guide
