It is ironic that the page title is 
" Disabled technologies pave the way for next generation mobile Web"

Hello All,
Here is some of the information published at the Physics Org site:
http://www.physorg.com/news73828266.html

 Scientists at The University of Manchester have a launched a new project
which seeks to combine web accessibility with cutting-edge mobile phone
technologies.
...
The RIAM project will draw on the experiences of blind and visually impaired
users and the technologies they use to surf the internet, such as
screenreaders, in a bid to simplify the content of conventional websites so
that they can be accessed via the mobile web.

Dr Simon Harper from the University's School of Computer Science will lead
the 205k project, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research
Council, alongside semantic web expert Professor Ian Horrocks and web
accessibility expert Yeliz Yesilada. 

Thanks,
Doyle
