Hi Lea,

I appreciate the issues you raise as accessibility for people with disabilities is ongoing. For people who are blind, there are neverending problems as most webdesigners don't even consider a thought for people who are blind. In the US there is currently a court case on accessibility for people who are blind - see http://iht.com/articles/2006/11/06/business/ecom.php

Looks interesting.
Just out of curiosity - how is a deaf person supposed to get access to 
any of this information?
And how will the search engines index it, allowing someone whos never 
heard of AUDA, is looking for just this information and has figured out 
how to use a search engine, to learn from this excellent information source?
And how will a poorer person, who is really trying hard to get out 
poverty, but their speakers broke and they can't afford new ones, learn 
from this site?

I could go on, but it boils down to a small question of 'is there an 
accessible alternative that I have missed on the homepage?'
