I think it is a good idea if that is what someone wants.  As long as it is
there choice, and in fact there is at least one group working that issue.
Only their scope is a bit wider, it is for all kinds of devices....

I think your idea is fantastic.  In fact it has many, many uses.

Subject: Personalisation - your thoughts please

Dear All,
What do people think about an idea of a website offering the ability to
personalise the site dependent upon a person's disability. This would be an
option rather than a rule and could enable a blind person to have content
delivered to them that is displayed to suit their requirements (be that for
their disability or the assistive technology they use). If pesonalisation
was not required then content would be delivered as if it were an accessible
Web page.

I hope that no one is offended by the proposition I have made, this is not
my intention.

I would be very interested in people's thoughts and criticisms of this
approach. I would also be pleased if people could justify the reasoning
behind their comments.

Thanks in advance.
