Bobby is good for what it is. It will, however, approve a completely useless
Flash site.

Hi Leslie,

I visited rideuta.com using pwWebSpeak32 last night and greeted with a blank
page. I guess Bobby was sleeping on this job. I suggest you take a look at
http://www-3.ibm.com/able/accessweb.html. Phill Jenkins, IBM Accessibility
Center - Special Needs Systems, recommended it to me on Monday and I found
very informative. Thanks Phil. Take a look at my site located at
http://members.colis.com/~jamaican/. Please note I have not done any
enhancements or updates since I discovered WAI but pwWebSpeak32 is still
able to
read about 80%. of each page.

I am happy to see you and the UTA are taking the initiative to be PWD
not only in the real world but also in cyber world. Keep up the good work. I
know you will improve your PWD friendly web authoring skills.
