I’ve read some concerns that people have raised about accessibility with regards to AJAX. I have a concern about interactivity—period—on the Web, and another trend that I see going on: businesses and individuals trying to turn the Web into a software application. It’s understandable that people would want the Web to become a software application and it has in many cases, but it’s doing that without the kind of guidance and oversight that was there when the Web itself was born and without someone really paying attention to the concerns about universal access. Things are happening in pockets of different software companies, but without oversight that would ensure that universal access is being considered when new technologies are developed. That concerns me a lot.
