Accessibility issues regarding tree view

Hello everyone,

Are any of you familiar with accessibility issues regarding using tree
views on the Internet? I know that not everyone on this list are big
fans of tree views at all, and that tree views have some usability
problems that affect both those who suffer from disabilities and those
who do not alike. However, I am at the moment only interested in any
issues that affect only users with some kind of disability or affect the
disabled significantly more than people who do not have any

When a widget is just not right ( was RE: [ID Discuss] Re-orderingrows in a table.)

I agree Dave. And besides ... the checkbox idiom is exactly what's desired here.

Sandeep wrote, relevant to the option using shifting:

Why in the world must the user be limited to selecting one row (i.e., in a radio button group) for the shift operation? And
would the rows thus selected have to be contiguous at the outset?

Designers, Build your iPhone Apps with Corona

If you feel technically challenged to build iPhone apps yourself, then you
need to know about this new tool.

While Apple¹s SDK is accessible to engineers, we designers have to leave the
honorable task of developing an iPhone application that we thought out and
carefully designed to technical savvy hands. But times are changing as the
guys at Ansca, Inc (www.anscamobile.com) just released an iPhone SDK that is
accessible to us!
