first off a little note for the lawyers. Point 30 from Webwork post (cheers WW)
That's because Internet Explorer doesn't deal with alt text the way it's supposed to :-P
Then for those of you that want to try and navigate the site with a screen reader:
-http://www.freedomscientific.com/fs_downloads/jaws.asp (damn encyclo beat me to it - so I delinked it)
This is JAWS (seem to be the most popular screen reader out there) free to try - not 30 days but 30 (or 40 I am not sure- downloaded it only yesterday) minutes , which resets on each reboot.
I'd also like to point out that (from the article on Yahoo):[Emphasis added for clarity]
As gpilling mentioned, it was a bad move (and more costly) from Target's part. By complying, saying OK we didn't do the minimum to get our site accessible, but we are working on it - they would have probably had a great publicity boost and have their name in the press for a good reason. Now they have to pay lawyers (which incidently cost more than web developers to hire) to defend bad decisions(not making the site accessible in the first place and filling a motion against the lawsuit instead of working on the site) which could be damaging their company's image.
Please Mr Judge, sir, make it stick :)
