         No it hasn't, but it's an excellent site. The opening page is 
obviously designed to be used by people with cognitive disabilities, tho 
much of the information on what these people need is just in text. But the 
information confirms what I've been saying for a long time - that the most 
basic need to accommodate these people is illustration in the form of 
graphics and sound files.
