    Accessibility with Olympics site

    Just read this article in BBC:

    Claims that the Olympics 2004 site meets all the accessibility requirements, so I ran Bobby through the entry page. Didn't pass the tests:

    Interesting to note that even basic things like a text link to Choose a Sport (which is done using a drop down list) was not made available. So, no scripting, no quick jump to the sport.

    It's interesting to note what people classify as making a site accessible to all. This still looks like a two tier system to me.

    Anyone care to comment on this?

    Hey Ian

    Nice to see you back, have you put all your holiday photos on your website?

    Anyway, I also read an interesting article on Evolt about this issue a couple of weeks back concerning the Winter Olympics.
