Hi Carlos,

thanks for the feedback. The accessible version of google which you refer to 
was introduced in the days when the standard google search was very screen 
reader unfriendly - there were no headings, no lists, etc. The standard site is 
now very accessible. You may still prefer the accessible version, but the 
advantages of the standard search include:
1. You can set the number of results per page in the preferences and google 
remembers this. If you set this to say 30, then you don't have to move between 
pages of results any more. (you can set the number of results per page in the 
advanced search of the accessible version, but google doesn't remember it.)
2. Some options such a searching only for pages in the UK are only availalbe in 
the standard version.
3. Google's suggestions for the correct spelling of misspelled search terms are 
only available in the standard version.

best wishes,
