Hugh,

Does this listserv include people who don't specialise in 'Web' stuff?
Personally I'm only qualified to comment about the Internet.

If you sold the message that by not having an accessible website and having
it tagged at such, it 'could' be filtered out of search results, this would
grab some attention. [1]

      Hi Tim,
      
      It's a good idea, and a good approach to take. 
      We could also broaden it out to cover e-design generally. 
      Has anyone any ideas on an eye-catching way to make this point? 
      
      All suggestions are welcome.
      
      Hugh

      Hi, 
      
      What about stressing the  commercial benefits for 
      companies in designing a website which is fully accessible.
      
      There was a recent study in the UK which said that 
      companies with poorly designed websites were missing out 
      on millions of pounds in potential revenue because 
      visually impaired people found it too difficult to access 
      their services online.
      
      Pointing out financial gain often concentrates the minds 
      of companies rather than the social and moral aspects of 
      designing  accessible websites.
      
      Tim

      Hi everyone, 
      
      We are looking into taking a stand out in this years ICT 
      Expo in May. 
      
      Overall we want to promote the use of the principles of 
      design for all. 
      Last year we had some assistive technology at the stand 
      to demonstrate with, and a design for all presentation running. 
      I am looking for suggestions for this year:
      
      - Is there a theme or an aspect of design for all that 
      would be useful to promote? 
      - Ideas for the display & presentation
      
      If we take the same size stand, we will have 3meters by 2 
      meters space, with a small table. 
      
      All suggestions are welcome.
      
      All the best, 
      
      Hugh O'Neill
