Hi All Would really be interested in one of our sites [http://www.mimas.ac.uk] being used with assistive technologies and also if anyone has any constructive criticisms about the accessibility. The site is being reviewed for redevelopment at the moment. Stuart

Hi all. I thought Wednesday at the National Library for the Blind was very informative. I wanted to let everyone know that I will be giving a presentation on implementing accessibility for the Usability Professional Association next Wednesday the 14th September at 6.30pm at the Cafe Muse. http://www.ukupa.org.uk/north/ for more details. It is a FREE meeting.

There should be the chance for some discussion. I am hoping that last Wednesday proved the case for accessibility and next week will show that is achievable with some thought and NO you do not have to sacrifice creativity to be accessible.
