Hi Francis, 

Glad to see that you have now headings on your site. 

I was wondering when that might happen! 

Nice one! 

Now with regard to the text-only versions of newspapers and the like could they 
be a separate heading with the others of non-text be a separate heading too? 

Am very much in favour of the latter as well as of course the text-only 
versions .

Now just one more thing to add, if I may suggest. 

The RNIB have a station called Insight Radio so possibly consider adding that 
one too to your stations list. 

I don't listen to it much myself except say when they would be covering  Sight 
Village and such but some others may find generally that station of interest to 


Continued progress with your sight.

  Hi all,

  Just to let you know that the Easylinks website now has headings to make it 
easier for screen reader users. So a Jaws user can now tap the letter H to go 
through the headings instead of having to arrow all the way down to get to 
where they want to go. There are 6 headings on the page, these are News and 
Information Websites, News Video and Audio, T V Listings, Irish Radio Stations, 
Regional Radio Stations, International Radio Stations. This should make it 
easier to navigate around and save you constantly arrowing down or constantly 
tabbing. Hope you find it user friendly. Thanks to Joan Ann for the suggestion. 
For anyone not familiar with headings it won't impact on the way you currently 
use the site. The address again is http://easylinks.yolasite.com/  All feedback
