    I am putting together some conceptual designs for a product and have 2 general questions concerning RadControls for Silverlight:
    1) Are the controls (in particular the slider) enabled for accessibility?
    2) Can the Radcontrols be localized? I use the meta:resourceKey keyword for an ASP.NET AJAX web application (using RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX as well) and really like that concept.

    Hello ChrisWalker,

    We are working on the accessibility support of the controls. I hope that for the Q3 release we will have significant improvement in this area. Our plans are to implement the UIAutomation interface for all of the controls. Currently only the TreeView controls has support for UIA.

    About the localization - yes all the controls are localized. We are using resource files to store all the used strings.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
