Hi all

I'm in a discussion on skype with a couple of my friends, and we were
talking about the lack of knowledge of people in help desks, concerning how
to help someone using a screenreader perform tasks on a part of a provider's
broadband site.  They are frustrated because of the lack of accessibility in
choosing or managing their various broadband features.

I wonder therefore, why can't some of the technology companies providing
access equipment, or possibly RNIB and any others who would be interested,
in setting up a truly accessible broadband provider.  I imagine that this
would probably involve using someone's network, to do this, and any profits
could be ploughed back into accessible technology products or services.

I wonder whether anyone has ever thought about this, is it feasible?
