    Open Source Technology

In the spring of 2008 Mozilla became concerned about the lack of support for deaf and blind Firefox users. Mozilla identified Dr. Silvia Pfeiffer and her company Vquence as the best resource for creating a plan for open video accessibility. By providing grants in 2008, 2009 and 2010, Mozilla supported the technology that implemented Firefox video accessibility features, such as text subtitles for the hearing-impaired and audio descriptions for blind users.
