Perhaps an online version of the WAI and RNIB video "Websites that work"
would help solve this problem?

I'm quite impressed with this video - as have been the people I show it to
when I'm travelling around doing awareness raising exercises.  Having it as
an online resource to point to would be a very useful tool (and help to
remove the barrier of physically having to order a copy).

I see from the archives of the Education & Outreach group & website that the
video was to be put online somewhere.  Was any progress made with this?
