WPF Accessibility Support Issues

Aint it great that the latest from MS falls short of the accessibility mark? Gotsta luv it. Here are the details.


  • Zoomtext does not work correctly with WPF. WPF rendering is based on DirectX not GDI. If Adaptive Technology does not support DirectX, there won’t be support in the tool for WPF controls.
  • The JAWS cursor doesn’t read any of the text/information in the native WPF screen content. The issue affects applications that render read-only text on screen.

Microsoft is aware of the issue and working on it.
