Google’s Accessible Search for the Visually Challenged

When I read about this new creation from Google I had to tell the world. For those of us fighting the good fight, trying to make the web available to as many people as possible, this is a huge step forward. You can test it for yourself at http://labs.google.com/accessible/

The project is headed up by a blind researcher who lost his vision from glaucoma as a kid. It is easy to overlook the fact that nearly 8 million online users in the US alone are visually impaired, and that the number increases as the web becomes available to more people. Can your business afford to turn away 8 million visitors? It could be the difference between sinking or swimming!
