I was under the assumption that since technologies *already* exist to help the visually-impaired enjoy the web, that the voice browser is geared toward standards-based hands-free navigation, either sitting back in your easy-chair at home or over an HPC or PCS cell phone while driving your car.

P.S. If I ever decide to, how may I remove myself from the www-voice mailing list?  Thank you.

Dear Sirs/Madames,

I discovered today on W3C.com site that there is a proposed definition
for voice enabled web sites. I see this as a major advancement in web
design for the visually impaired. I am currently doing volunteer work
for a number of charitable organizations in Jamaica, one of which is
affiliated with the Jamaica Society for the Blind. It is my aim to put
the Jamaica Society for the Blind on the www with their own domain name
and voice enabled site. Am I misunderstanding the purpose of the voice
browser? Will it facilitate the visually impaired in experiencing the
web? Are there any beta browser software available for testing?
Philip Ramsey
