[Irl-dean] Great evening and Question

It was a pleasure Claude, it was a great evening. Please let me know if you
think a regular social event would work. If people think it could work, how
often and how much you would be willing to pay? Naturally Segala can only
pick up the tab for so much (smile).


Regarding the UN e-Accessibility Day, I'd like to demonstrate how some
search engines and browsers are likely to adopt a new method of prioritising
search results. I can demonstrate a browser that highlights and prioritises
accessible Web sites over sites that don't claim to be accessible. The
browser allows users to filter out sites that are not claiming to be
accessible, even sponsored links are filtered out which made a few jaws drop
at Google, Microsoft and Netscape!

Thanks to Segala for that evening. Great to put faces onnames and to share
some ideas on accessibility.


I am giving a presentation on the 9th November to the Franco-Irishbusiness
community on e-Business (details to come) and I have decided to include a
part on Accessibility as I think it might be a good opportunity to educate
business managers and business owners. I was thinking of giving simple
examples with a color blind person and a blind person.


Here is the question:

Where can I can statistics with %of disabilities. Where I am coming from is
to explain to business managers and business owners is that they would be
foolish to ignore the issue.


best regards
