Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

IBM has a new service called WAT that promises to help make web sites — even those that aren’t standards-compliant — more accessible. WAT accomplishes this feat by manipulating web pages before they are displayed to the user. SeniorNet, one of the organizations working with IBM on the service, has a report about a demonstration of the service.

As this article in The Register indicates, the service is a good thing for those with disabilities, though it doesn’t diminish the importance of accessible web development techniques.
