Portal Accessibility


From: Larry G. Hull

This Week in Java called portals the next wave in software development.
The story appears at http://www.adtmag.com/article.asp?id=8978

I don't particularly like the portals I've seen and have been
wondering how someone with a screen reader manages to navigate these
sites that often have literally scores of links. One portal that I
visited recently had nearly 150 links.

Generally these links are grouped in the sense of appearing
sequentially under a subject heading but the ones I've seen have
lacked a subject index or other form of navigation.

Can anyone point me to portal accessibility guidelines or development tips?
