I just registered...

Here is the URL that I have set up with a certain set of preferences. The site does not require anyone to hand over an email address, you just have to create a nickname and password so that you can access the site each time with your visual parameters. The site does, however, rely on JavaScript to do this. However, I have just accessed the site in Lynx without having to enter any information, although there are some areas that could be improved...

May I suggest that everyone tries this out to see if it does what it says on the tin, so to speak.

Thanks David, this looks interesting.

Kind regards to all

The World Cup in Korea/Japan has now finished, but looking at the home page
of the official World Cup web site [1] today I noticed a link to 'Access for
the Visually Impaired'. 

This takes users to a new site [2] run by an organisation called
HandicapZero which appears to allow access to the World Cup site via some
transformation software named 'Confort de Lecture' which I guess presents
content in 'accessible' form. To access this requires a JavaScript enabled
browser. It required registering so I didn't go any further.

Does anyone have experience of using HandicapZero's accessibility
transformation service, or does anyone have details on how it works, and how
successful it is? 

How does it compare to other web-based services which transform third party
web content, such as JustVanilla [3]?
