Re: Slightly OT: Web Accessibility Certifications

Here's the URL:

Hey, neat, I don't qualify:

I don't use JAWS or WindowEyes, which seem to be a requirement.
("Do you own licenses for at least two screen reading programs?" -- no.)

I guess I'm not good enough to be an NFB "Web Accessibility

Based on the criteria they use -- which focuses ENTIRELY on designing
pages which can be used by blind people, without any apparent concern
for people with disabilities which are not visual -- perhaps this should
be called Blind Web Accessibility Consultant?

--Kynn, Mac OS X user who would have to spend over $1000 to buy
Microsoft Windows software he'd never use in order to be certified...
