Sorry Paul but there already are Braille Monitors...or at least braille
displays. In fact Bruce McGuire who took SOCOG to court uses one.  A friend
of mine who also uses one considers they have to come up with a better
version though so he can surf the porn sites....not one line at a time.

Deaf people also use the Web...there is provision for closed captioning in
most of the newer multimedia tools and a requirement for alternative
information in some form (transcripts) for audio information

Harry :)

I feel numbers rule on this point, 100% of the internet is inaccessible to
my mum, but then she thinks I sit all day at a microwave . Do I then design
with her in mind? How do you design for deaf and blind people? There are
more of those than doctors half way up mountains. Braille monitors??? now
there is an idea.
