Re: Web-based training_watermarks

Watermarks can be a major barrier for people with intellectual,
cognitive, learning and/or neurological disabilities by just being 'in
the way' of the text. So creativity is needed when using them (over
and above the low contrast barrier), if it is possible to go a
different route.

Just my experience with them.
