Virtual tours & accessibility


From: Webmaster

I'm wondering if anyone has worked with making web-based virtual tours
of facilities accessible.

Specifically, I want to find out what techniques are necessary (and if
it's even possible) to make a QuickTime VR panoramic (or other panoramic
plug-in) "virtual tour" meet Section 508 requirements. What is the
right approach in this case?

I did find an interesting related article on creating accessible virtual
tours (in this case, for museum web sites), but it didn't speak
specifically to the "panoramic plugin" issue:


Any help or links to resources would be appreciated.
