When I restore a Drupal site using drush, the file structure is written back to a child folder. That is instead of being written to /var/www/html, it’s written to /var/www/html/html.
I just came across this article in which Drupal 7 provides two classes in the theme layer to help design for screen readers. One hides from sighted users but still allows a screen reader to access the content. The other shows the content when a user tabs over to it.
Two separate classes have been defined, one to be used for elements that cannot receive focus, and a second for elements that can receive focus. When a focusable element is styled with the .element-invisible.element-focusable class it will appear visually when it receives focus. This is to help keyboard users to not lose the system focus into an invisible black hole.
I am excited to begin using this module once it’s released for Drupal 6.
This might be a bit of late notice but ODEP is having a webinar titled “Accessible Technology in the Workplace Webcast.” It looks to be a great view by anyone involved with disability employment or advocacy.

This is by far the best two and a half minute primer on how to caption a YouTube video.
It’s always fun pop into these ASL-only hangouts on Google+. I do hope they get the eye contact issue worked out. The low tech solution would be like in grade school: if you want to speak raise your hand.
Would anyone be interested in or know of any Deaf/HOH professional interested in a Technology meetup focused with topics presented in ASL (or at least SimCom) around Chicago?
Update: We ‘ve started a Chicago Deaf/HOH Technology group going on Meetup.com. Please sign up if interested.
