The Spry framework is not finished at this time. The support for accessibility is developing, and I’d love to hear comments. Feel free to post comments here or to the Spry forum on the Labs site.
Sounds pretty good, but what are the drawbacks? Page length and page weight are certainly factors to consider. If the page shows all of the data on a single page, there will be (in the case of the product demo) 150KB of images instead of 7KB and the page could be very long since it would have all of the content that is specific to each product on one page. There is the risk that the page would not be usable because of the length or page weight for some examples. Looking at the photo gallery demo I wouldn’t want all of the images from all of my photo galleries on a single page — pagination and separate galleries are useful features that help users deal with the large volume of content.

Welcome! We’re launching our blog focused on accessibility – this blog will share information about accessibility best practices for our many products, important occurances in the world of accessiblity in the context of developing with or using Adobe products, and other timely information that impacts how developers can use our products to deliver accessible information and experiences to all users.
Adobe has a new web site design as of today, fully combining the content of the macromedia.com site. If you’re looking for the accessibility resources for Adobe products the new starting point is the Adobe Accessibility Resource Center at http://www.adobe.com/accessibility/. This resource will continue to grow over time – please let us know what you think or what you’d like to see!
