I’ll have to check that out. This looks interesting, too: http://hanshillen.github.io/jqtest/#goto_carousel <http://hanshillen.github.io/jqtest/#goto_carousel>; Not sure if the hanshillen carousel supports multiple elements per slide or not.

I was looking at some hotel chain sites using VoiceOver. They were pretty problematic, especially carousels, so I started wondering how much they could retain the same look and feel while adding accessibility.

Like a picture of people sitting by a swimming pool with text saying “Sign up for a season pool pass” and a “sign up” link to the season pass page.
