Hi Jann

I was impressed when reading your e-mail on the JavaFX mailing list. I am really glad you voice the need for JavaFX accessibility, and I hope you get some constructive feedback from the developers (which I am sure you will).

I am working on a JavaFX app of my own, which will be available on at some point, and I have been thinking about the accessibility challenges ahead – it sure is not a trivial matter –  so thumbs up for your initiative!
