Auf der SharePointConference in Redmond hat HiSoftware die Version 1.1 des Accessibility Kits für SharePoint veröffentlicht und auch einen Blick auf die nächste Version AKS 2.0 gegeben, die im 3.QU.2008 erscheinen soll. Außerdem wurde ein Accessible Rich Text Editor (aRTE) angekündigt.

AKS 1.1

AKS 1.1 provides 21 new control adapters that improve the accessibility of SharePoint 2007's blog and wiki features, and it's downloadable from AKS 1.1 adds to the 24 control adapters, master pages, CSS files, and documentation that were released as part of AKS 1.0 a few months ago.

AKS 2.0

AKS 2.0, to be released in Q3CY2008 will consist of the following:
