Ok then Jennifer, what do you put into google?  Do you put in subjects,
topics that you want to find?

Subject: [Blind Casting] how to search for podcasts

Hi:

I'm changing the subject line but wanted to respond to Steve's discussion of
looking for podcasts in directories.

Maybe I've been thinking in a backward sort of way about this, but for my
money, Google rules when it comes to finding podcasts.

the Web sites of directories are nice enough for browsing, but from an
accessibility standpoint (or maybe I should really say a usability
standpoint), they take too long to navigate with a screen reader.

Most of the directory sites aren't inaccessible (in the general, rather than
the expertly assessed sense of that word), but I just don't have time to
wander around through all those links.  Lots of good Web folks use headings,
and that helps considerably.

But Google's still the fastest for me, even when I'm having to guess at
spelling.

Just my two cents.

Best,
Jennifer
