She is a well-known cross-disability accessibility expert and consultant, a popular lecturer, trainer, researcher and author.

  • Hi Ronny,

    Yes we are aware of the accessibility issue of using this encryption method and are looking into alternatives. We will make the appropriate changes shortly.

    I think I read an entry about accessibility of online communications for people with disabilities in a recent First Reference blog. It mentioned one barrier being the encryption(?) that people wanting to submit a comment have to complete….Here is a good example of this barrier in this very blog !! I bet I’ll have to try several times to copy the letters and I’m not disabled !
