This is work-in-progress, but mod_accessibility has a good deal more
to offer than other tools I'm aware of, including the proxy (which it
replaces) and Betsie.

I've just uploaded a set of webpages describing it.  They're currently
at <URL:http://www.webthing.com/~nick/mod_accessibility/> (which is
clearly not going to be their final address).  I hope this should be
of interest to anyone responsible for producing or publishing web content.

More to follow when it's ready, but (as always) comments invited.
