    Travel Sites Agree To Improve Accessibility

    See this article in Internet Week on Tuesday Aug 24

    Not only does it confirm that web accessibility is an area where the rights of disabled people can be enforced legally, but it also reaffirms that adherence to WAI guidelines is the accepted standard for accessibility.

    Good.

    A lack of case law is a pretty big problem when trying to encourage / force site owners to make their sites accessible. Banging on about the Sydney Olympics case hasn't done the trick so far. I think, in the UK, we're still quite a way off someone getting hit in the pocket in this way, but I'm sure people will start to take note when it might happen to them.
    Hello, hello, what's all this shouting?
    We'll have no trouble here
