  • *snooze* Is anybody still paying attention? This has become a non-event – even for me. I'm ready to go back to Google, methinks. I've learned my lesson, had a bit of fun, and certainly lasted longer than a single week. I'm not even keeping track of my mundane searches anymore…

Google offers no accessible form of verification, and they have been promising this for a year. Yahoo has an alternative method for the blind, and so does MSN. I heard of one web site that implimented an excellent workaround in two days. Meanwhile Google keeps making empty promises.

Being blind and using a screen reader, I cannot open a google blog, email account, or even comment on any Google blogs. Any mention of this you can give would certainly be appreciated.”
