Following Accessibility-related pages on has non-working links or outdated information that should be updated or removed.


* Link "Firefox's Built-in Accessibility Features" linking to (404) - can link to instead.
* Link "Assistive Technology Compatibility" linking to VERY outdated - can link to SUMO article instead.


* All links in the "AT API" section are dead and goes to the MDC front page.


* Link to XPI in section "Availability" points to long-dead xulplanet website.


* Link to "Technology Compatibility" in section "Learn More" > "Accessibility" seems mixed up.


* In section "The Approaches" a link to "XUL" points to long-dead xulplanet website.


* In section "Introduction" a link to just goes to MDN front page.
* All following XPI links are (naturally) wildly outdated.
* There are a number of dead XULPlanet links in the rest of the article.
* There are several dead links (ex: ) in the following text which goes to - may be best alternative thou.


First section states that FF 2 help via F1 key gives "Accessibility Features" help, but in FF 3+ this points to SUMO. Users may find this rather confusing. The following 4 links are all very excellent, but a link to on SUMO would be even more helpful. Also note that besides the linked SUMO article, there are another 3 high quality articles on SUMO: "Accessibility", "New Accessibility features in Firefox 3" and "Firefox 3 with Screen Readers FAQ".
