Re: Why blind users can't submit at AltaVista either

I emailed AltaVista with a similar query last year - they use the same
technique to prevent auto submission of web sites to the search index. They
said they would provide an email link for use by blind users instead.
However, I cannot see where (on the page below or in the FAQs), so it may
have been a hollow promise.
