All widgets need to properly work with the Qt Accessibility Framework. This is 
especially important for all widgets in KDE libraries. Writing tools for easy 
testing of accessibility support depends on DBUS support being finished, 
which means that it will take a while before we can push people to start 
coding on this.

It must be clear to everyone that it needs to be task of the respective 
maintainers to find someone to work on this. Our very small accessibility 
team is already more than busy providing the proper framework for this and 
writing documentation. And translators are not expected to adding the i18n 
calls into all applications either.

It is not necessary to finish accessibility support for the preview, but we 
need it when KDE4 is released.
