of J.K. Rowling's site are wizards at creating accessibility

British author J.K. Rowling, creator of the wildly popular Harry 
Potter series, uses technology

     http://www.jkrowling.co.uk     Official SIte

to create some additional magic on her official web site. [a 
text-only version is the solution?]:

The site, designed by Lightmaker

     http://www.lightmaker.com/

in coordination with RNIB and Macromedia:

I'm surprised that RNIB is featuring this on their website:
    * The official site of Harry Potter author J K Rowling, 
(<http://www.jkrowling.co.uk/>www.jkrowling.co.uk), has been relaunched
    * with enhanced accessibility features. Designers of the site, 
Lightmaker, have worked closely with
    * RNIB and Macromedia to develop this pioneering new version 
which pushes the boundaries of
    * accessible Flash. See 
<http://www.lightmaker.com/company/index.cfm?section=latest_news&press_id=26>Lightmaker 
press release for further information.
and Macromedia, has recently been updated to give universal access to 
internet users
who may be disabled, deaf, or visually impaired. It serves as a 
terrific model for how schools
can make their own web sites fully accessible to stakeholders....

Note that links are positionally sensitive pop-ups to further offset pop-ups.

What an education and outreach opportunity!
