Websites have to be labelled correctly, and Flash is sometimes the worst. One cannot fix this once a flash item is on a website or message, and this along with certain Ajax applications and some that run in the program and pages that refresh are problematic. Most chat rooms are not accesible either. So, what can we do? There are resources but it is good to have a plan for making sure your website is accessible which will be required by the Americans with Disabilities Act soon. Anyway, I am a user who has provided many evaluations and suggestions. Corporations can receive federal tax credits if they have a profit motive. Non-profits do not have the same credits, unfortunately, and government is subject to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. There are many 508 compliance officers in the government.
