On Tuesday I did a presentation on WAI, Eeurope and Danish activities for a
group that are taking a diploma education in Digital Public Administration.
Telling them why accessibility is important and necessary and where to find
the information, I started the 2-hour talk with a JAWS demonstration. You
can see my slides at
http://www.visinfo.dk/Info/organisation/medarbejder/hbj/ they are mainly a
collection of links to the resources I think are most useful when you want
to know about accessible web design and how to get started. I've made the
Getting started page as a hand out (in Danish) and I think it's useful as a
quick overview of where to start.
On Wednesday the minister for IT and Research presented the rewards to the
sites that have won this year's competition connected to the

judges' special price for a site that are made to involve the citizens more
in the coming municipal and county elections with chat rooms and the
possibility to send and receive e-mails from the local politicians The site
has only existed for 3 weeks and have already had thousands of users. One of
the judges is from the Danish Association of the Blind and representing the
Danish Disability Organisations Umbrella Organisation.
 Look for your self and see how accessible the winners are.
