The Java Accessibility API is a broad effort that includes contributions from a number of groups. We in the IBM Accessibility Center would like to thank the people in the following groups for contributing to and supporting the Java Accessibility API effort:
- Sun Microsystems AccessibilityGroup
- Sun Microsystems Swing team
- Trace Research and Development Center at the University of Wisconsin - Madison
- Adaptive Technology Resource Centre at the University of Toronto
- IBM Corporation
These guidelines are a result of contributions, technical edits, and suggestions from members of the IBM Human Ability and Accessibility Center, including:
- Roger McKay
- Ellen Eggers
- Priscila Vicente
- Frances Brown
I would especially like to thank Sun Microsystem's Peter Korn for reviewing the guidelines and Earl Johnson for driving the Javatm accessibility effort at Sun. There are few companies who have so strongly supported people with special needs. Sun Microsystems, like IBM, is one of those companies. Earl Johnson is the driving force behind Sun's accessibility efforts.
Thank you Earl!
