Have you tried their new library site? if this was designed for us screen readers then I'm a monkey, it's absolutely rubbish.
As for their products, avoid like the plague if at all possible.
There are good products straight from the peg with a little thought on our part can be used by most V I person.

Hi Ian

I don't know if you read this newspaper but last week in the daily mirror there was an article about an American woman who wanted to go blind which infuriated me about as much as what you have written has. There was also an advert about fifteen years ago done by action for blind people that made us look totally helpless which annoyed me as well. I don't buy the rnib's products as I think they are poor quality most of the time. and when my year's subscription is up I don't think I will renew it either.

Janet ps there are still letters at the bottom of your messages.

Subject: [access-uk] RNIB PRODUCT BOYCOTT

I am seriously considering boycotting what few RNIB products and services I use - chiefly the electronic newspaper service - in response to their latest ad campaign. There has been an item on this at the end of today’s edition of WATO. Celebs including Barbara Windsor and Shirley Bassey are presented talking about the idea of being told they’re going blind. Bassey describes that possibility as being “Devastating” and says she might as well be told that she’s going to die. Once again they have turned my impairment into a thing of terror and me into an object of pity and I’ve had enough of it.N�^j����b��%��(��^�i�v&�z\��Yh�)�)䙨����q�,�Jު笵��zX���+�˛��- �칻 �&�!�a��b�Ghz��Š�����jg������q�,�Jު笵��zX���+��݊{ay+���- �)޷*^�{.n�+�����-����\�i���,��Z���jب�jy�brJ'���g���^�'�Z0�x%�y&j)m��z�.�����-~���+-�����y�}���u���z�qDz�z���y�ۮ �y+��
