If we are to go ahead with this it is important to choose the right place to
start. I'd suggest choosing pages that already talk about multimedia rather
than implementing it. They will clearly work better with images and sound.
do have alook at : http://diap.net/serge.html the words add very little, and
without the sound the page is not very informative.

Only one idea is supposed to be expressed per page, with perhaps a few
examples, do have another look at http://www.peepo.com
you have up to 30 words to express a single idea.
ie Zoo: tiger lion giraffe

You've also chosen a topic 'presentation' that is graphical great, many of
the points are about text, so naturally they will not be so well described
with images.

The keyboard is an amazing way to navigate. An LD colleague has recently
instigated keyboard access and has created a 'standard' simple page here:
http://atschool.eduweb.co.uk/meldreth/help/pages/pages.html

This may not be exactly what WAI wants to offer, but something similar could
be great, along the lines of those dreadful themed starter homepages offered
by many, but accessible.
