The Add-On should be reviewed so it is public on AMO, and added to the Web Developer Toolbox.
Its dependent screen reader mechanism is shipping in Firefox for Desktop, and web developers, not just for Firefox OS, can get a feel for what their content will sound like to a screen reader user, by visual inspection.
Maybe one day... the addon isn't on AMO anymore... do we want to leave this open as a reminder?

I would keep it as a reminder.

I don't think this will ever get to AMO since it is not and cannot be a webextension.

Maybe one day we will have something DOM or AOM based that would be worth putting up there.

I would close this..

Product: Firefox → DevTools
Eitan, do we still want this at all since we now have our a11y inspector?
Flags: needinfo?(eitan)
No. It is also not possible now without legacy extensions.
