I seem to have missed out on the previous posts on this subject. The
comments in general seem to be what I would call common sense useability
issues (note that I recognise that not everyone, and certainly not web
designers, has or uses common sense). What interests me more is David
Brewer's statement that he can foresee a battle between disability groups on
a sensory/cognitive split that will enable "web access issues to be skirted
by designers". Putting aside the fact that the majority of designers skirt
these issues already, how can we avoid David's perceived battleground
becoming yet another get-out clause for web developers? It is obvious that
there are very real and different issues for different groups of disabled
users - how do we marry them all? Do we even try?

We have not forgotten you. I sent your guidelines off to our own staff, and
also to four colleagues with expertise in cognitive disabilities (traumatic
brain injury) and developmental disabilities. We have been waiting to see if
anyone else responded to us. Elaina Sitaras, our Research Assistant, is
coalescing these responses for us, and will be sending these off to out
tomorrow, from whatever feedback we have gotten. She will also be sending
the names and contact information for anyone who has responded, in case you
want to get back to them with questions. We hope that this will be of
