Hi,

I am some accessibility advice to an organisation designing a Website aimed
at people with learning difficulties and those supporting people with
learning difficulties. The designers want to build the site based on using
Frames for navigation - quoting the W3c guidelines saying that they can be
made accessible. For all the reasons I have listed on my site (see
http://www.mcu.org.uk) I don't think this is a good idea - but I am keen to
hear what people on this list think of frames and accessibility.

If your were building a Website from scratch, that had to be accessible -
would you use frames? If not why not?

Thanks,
Jim
