Hi 

just been reading through what you are doing and I think its great. Can I ask one thing though - you correctly say that sign language users can find it difficult to follow written English; should public bodies who say their website has been designed to W3C Accessable standards also have some signed video content even if only to say that they will arrange for a sign language interprer for a deaf person who wanted to talk to them?  

Its just that I am having a debate with the Scottish Charity regulator about lack of access of both their premises and their website and their response was that their website complied with W3C standards. It does have a lot, even browsealoud and a language translation website service but nothing for sign language users.

Hope to hear from you in due course.

Regards

Brian Hogan
