Very
cool, I will have to try this. Think this is a great idea to keep in
mind when designing, and I never would have thought you could have a
truly ""accessible"" map! "

Being
the proud son of a blind (visually impared) woman I have always tried
to think of ways to share digital maps with her. Over the years,
computers themselves have been frustrating (and expensive). The
evolution of the GUI has forced screen reader software programs to
adapt to an interface designed with the sighted person in mind. The
main problem is standards. Like Dan Cederholm (author on web design)
suggests if digital designers followed standards similar to how
builders follow building codes then things will not only be easier to
build upon or update they will be easier to deliver amongst a variety
of methods because you could plug the data/information into the various
delivery devices/programs. Although, I remain skeptical about voluntary
adherence to standards I do see their value in tailoring visual
information for blind people. "
