accessibility on the site and in clients

accessibility on the site and in clients

Short, concise description of the idea
clients offten arent accessible to the blind i should know i am blind i use the window-eyes screen reader it is made by gw micro this can be fixed in the two most popular screen readers jaws for windows and window-eyes jaws for windows (jfw) uses scrips and is made by hj or something to that effect thats the site address 's main part window-eyes uses set files i use window-eyes myself

Full description of the idea
clients arent accessible most of the time blind people use software called screen readers i am blind myself and the client that was suggested in the support area wasnt going to work for me because the pithon software is too big i think there should be a windows client with sets and scrips for (jfw) and window-eyes i will give contact information for gw micro and a web site address for the other company also the web site could use a text only version so the graphics would not pre sent a problem for blind people screen readers have trouble with graphics and pictures with a text only page this problem is gone and people can move aroundh the site more effectively
