Example of LIFT Text Transcoder improving complex accessibility issues

Dear Ann patrick, Phillip and Tim

I thought it would be worth following up with a specific example where
LIFT Text Transcoder can be used to create an accessible view of a not so
accessible and hard to use section of a site. I have used the UGA events

Go to http://transcoder.usablenet.com/tt/http://www.uga.edu and select
"Events at UGA " this is a framed based area of the site. View the
original version at https://db.uga.edu/mastercalendar/

Testing with a range of assistive users has shown that the LIFT Text
Transcoder view is far easier to use than the original view. It can also
be accessed by Mobile users on PDA's as well as assistive expanding the
value of the view.

This more assistive friendly view is achieved by combining the dynamic
nature of LIFT Text and annotations we at UsableNet create for each site
to improve primary areas of the site. This power behind the scenes is what
makes this a unique solution .

To go directly to the assistive friendly view of this calender you can go to:
