"password matches" and "password strength" accessibility could be better. Much of the problem is that to screen readers, the content is not presented in a consistent logical fashion. Furthermore, changes to the page (password strength & password confirmation) are not passed along to the screen reader effectively via ARIA.
"password matches" indicator (label followed up by the value) should be placed after the "confirm password" field, not before.
In addition to this (
I don't know if this is possible this is possible) it would be great that when a user is typing into the "confirm password" field he/she could ear when password and "confirm password" field matches, as it happens for value changes of the "password strength" indicator.
These are really important for drupal accessibility!
