Apologies if I'm being Mr Thicky today but could you please clarify what you
mean? Are you thinking of a site which would render other sites content
based on a profile? Or for each site to offer different ways of presenting
their content? I'm thinking the later is already done in a small way through
"Text Only" links on sites like MS though.

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.
