Hi Athen folk

I am guessing that this list is probably the best place to look for people
who know what I'd like to know.

I frankly have little interest in social networks for myself, but they have
become so popular as to be worth my learning about them. Also I think they
could make a good topic for EASI Webinars. So, what I am really looking
for is someone to help EASI put on a live Webinar discussing them and their
accessibility problems or solutions.

I am thinking of face book, twitter and my space. . . .

How accessible is each for:
1 a screen reader user
2 a screen magnification user
3 people with various cognitive and learning disabilities?

I assume they work ok for people who are deaf.

If anyone is willing to help with a Webinar or knows someone else to
recommend, please email me directly at
