Hello everyone,

Louis Proyect sent to lbo his web page to look over. I have a question to Louis Proyect, did you try to make your web page accessible to disabled folks who might want to see it? You don't appear to me to use d-links (links to "descriptions" of a graphic that a blind persons screen reader can use easily) to describe your graphics (or alternatively provide a text only page). It would seem to me that you could stand to go to an automated web site service like "bobby" to see if your web site is accessible to the disabled. They will verify that your site is accessible, and provide a standard graphic indicating your compliance with national standards concerning access. While your site may have few problems, Bobby provides insights about why something doesn't work well.


I am sure this was simply your being uninformed of such things, and not intentional. For further information about web accessibility why not visit the "cast" main page, or WAI (Web site Accessibility Initiative)


for suggestions and ways to accomodate disabled people. These include blind, low vision, and cognitively disabled folks. The disabled surfing the net might find you interesting, if they can navigate clearly through you work, and it is important to be aware of how unconscious practices can block access for the disabled. yours, Doyle Saylor
