OK, enough of the semantics about how I phrased my question and how you 
interpreted it - for those who took offence I appologise, none was 
intended.  I am keen to make sites as accessible as possible, however 
am not up to speed with the latest PC terminology so am grateful for 
the guidance on the subject.

Getting back to the issue in hand, is there any standard for making  a 
site accessible for people that are hearing impaired and speech 
impaired.

Considering the sensitivity of the whole area I am concerned about 
going down one route that doesn't cater for all.  With different 
standards for sign language and also different dialects I haven't a 
clue where to start.

If there isn't a standard, how about starting one?

Cheers,
