I tried out the text only version once and found it just as annoyingly full
of links as the real page, so have just stuck to the real page ever since.
I actually used Amazon once as an example for a conference about Web
accessiblility, but honestly, if you can navigate using using the more
advanced Internet functions that screen readers have available, IE not just
arrows, you should be OK.

It's actually not too bad. They supposedly have a text only page, but I've always just used the regular one. It's even easier if you turn on one click ordering.

-- John Moore I just got a $25 gift certificate to Amazon. I typically don't like dot-coms because I've heard that they are very unreliable. How accessible are the web pages at Amazon for screen readers? And, are the prices pretty good?
