Hello Angela,
We have never met, but glad to know you. I agree, we need to work together 
on the other million wevsites that are not blind-friendly yet. We can start 
with the airlines. I was wondering what happens now that Target was made to 
accomadate the blind. Do we just sit and waitt for other violators to follow 
suit, or do we continue our mission. Can someone  explain it to me please.
