Oh, thanks for reminding me.  I intend to pass the direct link to this
episode to CC Chapman to let him know what it takes and preface with
comments that it is merely a demonstration that blind people do use the
site but it is definitely clunky indeed.  Most of the site isn't all
that bad but those unlabeled graphics have got to go.  I honestly don't
know that these graphics behave like under Internet Exploder but I did
all this with Firefox.  I even thought about possible labeling these
graphics with Window-Eyes' graphics labeler and perhaps that might make
things less awkward in the future.  There are parts that turn out to be
quite accessible though it may be mere coincidence.
