This is my report on activities related to the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending January 18, 2008.
Projects for the week
Here's a summary of what Foundation-related activities went on last week; for more information about others' activities please see the weekly status reports published by David Boswell, Gerv Markham, and Zak Greant.
Grants and related expenditures
I'm happy to announce a major new grant from the Mozilla Foundation to NV Access to support development of the NVDA open source screen reader for Windows; the NVDA developers blog has all the details.
Scott Haeger completed the final milestone on his project to improve rich document browsing in the Orca screen reader for Linux. For more information see the GNOME wiki pages for Firefox 3.0 ARIA widget support in Orca, Firefox 3.0 Live Region support in Orca, and integrating the Collection interface into Orca.
Codethink Ltd completed its Foundation-funded study on the feasibility of migrating the AT-SPI accessibility API to use D-Bus.
I got a grant agreement in place for another major new grant to be announced later.
