Just wanted to blast it here as well that I made an accessibility toolkit module which provides a block to help provide ways of improving your site for different visual impairments; most resolving around dyslexia (like a font that makes it easier to read). We also store the setting in a cookie and in the future will do this on the serverside so it doesn't have to reload each time (as the screencast currently shows).

while i am biased towards early ARIA adaptation, having worked on the ARIA spec for longer than i'd care to remember, i would counsel both early adaptation AND redundancy for graceful degredation, for, as everett has consitently and correctly pointed out, implementation of ARIA is incomplete and inconsistent...Read more
earlier today, i drafted what i considered a thoughtful, yet quick, reply to a comment upon the development of an accessibility statement for Drupal (http://groups.drupal.org/node/39134#comment-155813), but my comment was identified as possible spam, so i was required to take a CAPTCHA test in order to authenticate my comment, but when i attempted to use the audio captcha, the page refreshed, completely wiping out almost a half-an-hour's work which i had put into my response...Read more
