One question I have: do you feel that every site MUST be made accessible to everyone? For example, if someone has a site that is mostly an image gallery, should that person be forced to amke it accessible to legally blind people (by including very long descriptive ALT tags for every image, etc.)?
I've got some questions, some more basic than others. Feel free to pick any that you'd like to answer. Also, if I understand it from your initial post, you fit into the majority group of legally blind persons whose sight is impaired but not non-existent. Am I correct?
Here are my first questions, in a random order:
I may come back with some more questions later. :) Thanks again, your experiences and input will be extremely valuable for many web developers here.
When you surf, what do you get and how do you deal with it?
Thanks for the offer about direct appraisal but posting our own links here against the terms and all that - so no can do.
You can use the longdesc="" attribute along with the alt="" attribute. The longdesc attribute points the browser to another textual description page if the viewer has a seeing disability.
