RE: Google accessible search gone

Seriously, don't you think we're throwing around the term "inaccessible" a 
little loosely to say that the regular Google search is inaccessible?  While it 
sounds nice, I've never used the so-called accessible search, always using the 
regular search although I turned off the "instant" part.  While there are 
things I would change if it were written specifically for me, I would not have 
thought it to be inaccessible.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson
