... One of the latest ways, they say, is the Pennsylvania
ElectriChoice Program's Web site, which allows Pennsylvania customers
to choose their power company. The program's Web site, introduced at a
news conference Tuesday, (August 24, 1999) allows people to see images
enlarged, hear text read aloud or read it themselves in Braille. The
ElectriChoice site, located at www.electrichoice.com, is designed to
be used with magnification software, Braille displays, and screen
"readers" that allow text to be read with speech synthesizers. ...

Ummm ... am I missing something, or is the only "design" feature of that site the presence of the "Text Only" link at the top of the page?
