RE: Help on approach for annotating images

Hi all,

After starting with the question on annotating images I have one more. . . .

I have a site that has 2 skins - one with fewer images, and larger black
white text to aid visually impaired users. I use access keys for the
standards that exist (there is a UK government standard). I have a
disability access page with information about the alternative view.

My question is - how do I let users know there is an alternative view of the
site. My concern is that a visually impaired user will struggle with the
ordinary site to the extent they won't even find out about the alternative.
Are there any standards/conventions to help?
