In this episode Scott talks to Saqib Shaikh, a developer for Microsoft Consulting Services in the UK, who is also blind. They chat about accessibility in Windows, on the Web and in the next generation of Web Applications written with AJAX and Silverlight.

An interesting quote:

"There is nothing specific to accessibility built into .NET 3 and WPF, they just simply make everything automatable."

"By not calling it 'accessibility' it's an easier sell [to developers]."
