I don't say much on this list, don't even have a pod but I must agree. Maybe
I'm living in a cave, don't do much, or am sheltered but I have had very
little trouble doing what I need to do on the computer. Now, remember I
didn't say no trouble, I said very little. If something doesn't work, I
usually can find a workaround. If I can't, the world doesn't stop. It's not
that I don't care or don't stand up for what I believe in but, for the first
30 years or so of my life I didn't even have a computer and you know what, I
survived. I am more concerned about the many radio and TV outlets are
controlled by only a few people. That's something to worry about. Radio is
crumbling before my ears and I can do nothing about it.
Yeah, completely agree Chris.

Hi Darcy and all
Ok, now I really hope I'm not opening a can of worms on this one, but I'm
afraid I may, so let's hope that we can all discuss this thing without all
getting fired up.
I just finished listening to the most recent DHS podcast, and I have to say
that I wholeheartedly agree with Darcy about the whole issue of
I have to say that I think the site in question,
Takes things way way overboard, because sites that most, if not all the
people that I encounter on a daily basis, have absolutely no problems
accessing these sites. I also think Darcy is correct when he pointed out
that someone new to Podcasting, not knowing any better, would have a
preconceived notion about a podcast's website, based on the rating it gets.
That's the thing about the word "accessibility" it's either all or nothing
to a lot of people and it just doesn't seem right to me. I find almost all
the podcast websites I visit to be extremely accessible, and the ones that
are a bit cluttered, I know how to find my way around.
I mean, look at these results.
Blind Chance, Shane's Live Journal, The Desert Skies Podcast, and The
Darcy and Holly Show all got an accessibility rating of fare. I
don't have a single problem accessing these sites at all. none whatsoever.
Geek News Central got an average,
Blind Cool Tech got an average, as did The Mosen Explosion among others. I
don't have trouble with any of these sites, do any of you guys? I'd like to
see if anyone else thinks these guys are just a little off?I definitely

If you've never listened to our show before, or you haven't listened for a while, I hope you'll check this one out. Despite the fact that I think we were both in a bit of a weird mood, I think it came out really well. As those of you who listen regularly know, we don't often talk about blindness related issues on our show. We did this time however, and we'd love to get some feedback from both blind and sighted listeners. The web site for the show is http://www.darcyandholly.com.
