I just got and email from usable net giving examples of organizations using
Lift to make their web sites accessible.

 

The first I looked at showed this is no solution

What pictures?

 

I think if solutions like this are used on an interim measure they should
clearly indicate on every page that the page does not convey the full
information on a page and is not truly accessible otherwise organizations
will continue to serve junk thinking they have made their site accessible.
