Does anyone on the list regularly checks their pages for 'switch*' 
accessibility?

Our site http://www.peepo.com is fully switch accessible, however many 
of the resources we link to, are not.

We've been asked to create a separate site linking to switch accessible 
sites, or identify resources which are. Unfortunately due to the 
paucity of suitable resources the second option does not seem 
functional.

This is a very similar check to lynx, do the guidelines refer to the 
need for this provision?

thanks

*switch as it sounds means a physical switch, two work more easily, if 
the user is able. One is used to scan, i.e. mimic the tab button, the 
other to click, usually mimicking the enter button.
