Dear Jim,

Even for sighted users (Firefox in my case) the slide show is difficult. The instructions say “press the space bar for next slide” but even clicking the mouse button changes the slide too. And there is no way to go back to a previous slide. So when I tried to scroll down the slide to read the bottom line I accidentally went to the next slide and had to continue, or start from scratch.  

You are right that the whole page is loaded initially, different bits are hidden as you progress through the show. BUT it is definitely not something I would use. It was developed in 2005 so I would hope that there is something better available now.

I hope this is something that's fairly easy for a totally blind person to do. I want to experiment with HTML Slidy to see if I can make and show a slide show. I went to http://www.w3.org/Talks/Tools/Slidy2/#(1) and was attempting to read the slide show there. JAWS kept jumping around, or the screen kept refreshing. I'm unsure which. Is there a different tutorial to read about this? I actually was able to get the show to display all of the slides on one page. I was also hoping to read a little more about slide accessibility in case I can get this to work.
