Bindows enables Ajax and Web 2.0 government and enterprise applications to address Section 508 accessibility requirements.

MB Technologies(TM), developers of Bindows(TM), the leading development framework for Ajax and Web 2.0 applications, announced today the release of Bindows version 2.0 with enhanced support for Section 508 accessibility compliance, an industry first. Available today, Bindows 2.0 enables developers to reach all audiences effectively and efficiently by building Ajax and Web 2.0 applications that meet US Government and international standards for accessibility.

Working closely with The Paciello Group (TPG), international experts and pioneers in the field of accessible interface design, the Bindows development team spent over a year solving many of the technical complexities that accessibility requirements pose to Ajax and Web 2.0 applications. The Bindows framework now leads the market by enabling the fastest time to market for Ajax and Web 2.0 applications that work with leading screen readers, such as JAWS, without requiring any download or installation (zero-footprint.)

"Bindows represents a major advancement in the accessibility of rich internet and Web 2.0 applications and, I am very happy to say, raises the bar for Ajax accessibility," said Mike Paciello, founder and president of The Paciello Group. "MB Technologies and TPG are committed to continued enhancement of Bindows to ensure that it empowers developers with the framework and toolset they need to create Section 508 and W3C compliant applications. Bindows 2.0 represents that level of commitment, establishing MB Technologies as a frontrunner in the pursuit of Ajax and dynamic web application accessibility."

Proven and mature, Bindows leads the Ajax framework market by enabling the development of zero-footprint web applications that are as rich and responsive as any modern desktop application. Bindows’ industry-leading object-oriented architecture and rich toolset enable developers to build Ajax and Web 2.0 enterprise applications that interoperate with any backend platform, server, operating system, and major web browsers. Bindows also supports Unicode and any language across the globe.

"We are extremely proud of the Section 508 support in Bindows 2.0 and our strong working relationship with TPG," said Yoram Meriaz, CEO of MB Technologies. "Our accessibility achievements were the result of an enormous investment on the part of both companies. Our ongoing commitment to accessibility is part of our larger goal to realize the full potential of Ajax for our corporate and US Government customers."
