This was good of Bluewave, but in my opinion they didn't do a very good job of
it really (and the RNIB holding it up as an example of accessibility might not
be such a good idea).

It's another case of good intentions about accessibility, but poorly implemented
in the end. Just like, for instance,
http://www.princes-trust.org.uk/accessibility.asp (just *look* at in Lynx -
http://tinyurl.com/en2 - an utter disaster).
