Not sure how many people on this list read Jacob... sometimes I agree with
him, sometimes I think he's way off base, but the topic line is relevant to
this list (and this time I tend to agree with him <grin>).

Cheers!

Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox for April 7 is now online at:
   http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20030407.html

Summary:
The key difference between user interfaces for sighted users and blind
users is not that between graphics and text; it's the difference between
2-D and 1-D. Optimal usability for users with disabilities requires new
approaches and new user interfaces.
