This may be OT but has consideration gone into accessibility of the Manager UI? The 097 interface is so far pretty slick and extensible but I wonder about for non browser/mouse users and not just to comply with WCAG or 508 but to actually be usable for people who use touch screens, wands and eye-trackers as well as screen readers?
I’ll start a new thread if it ought to be (or Ryan just move it).
Jay, I am so grate you brought this up. Although most of my clients don’t know and don’t care about the accessibility and I have not been able to sell accessibility to them, but I am adamant to build sites as friendly and accessible as possible for their users, including people who use screen readers.
I have recently begun to pay attention to the accessible issue for the admin side after playing with the 0.9.7 SVN a bit, thought so far I haven’t been able to wrap my head around Ext2.0, but the idea of being able to customize the manager UI is exciting.
@ Ryan, wonder if we can have a forum for best practices of accessibility ?
Lastly, a bit of self-promo, one of my modx site is awarded for Notable Universal Design in the accessites dot org.
