Hi Karen,

I'm not offering myself up as an expert, but there is no real laww  
lording over this entity except perhaps ada which might worrk.   
Accessible to whom?  I can use jaws 8..0 to see if I can access the  
site but I'd encourage anyone interested in accessibility to read:
There, they can pick out documents describing accessibility of web  
content and interfaces from a number of different angles.  One thing  
you might want to point out to the folk is that if their site is not  
accessible, it may be possible for them to become embroiled in  
legalities over it and that accessible does not mean jaws any xxx.

Hi folks,
I know there are a few on this list who work professionally regarding
access issues from a web standpoint.
I am seeking a pro whom I will direct to folks at jp morgan-chase.
I just had I admit a shouting match regarding a supervisor's claim that
since the site works with jaws 7.2 it is legally accessible.
Of  course you have to be using this perhaps, I doubt it would work
regardless, to reach it.  he would not provide this information in  
simply claim you can find it on their site.
If you can get there.
lots of java links, not even javascript .

Never mind my pointing out that access is not tied to the screen reader
but the site itself.
let alone the holes in jaws itself.
Any takers?
   on a side note, I would welcome finding an expert for a possible  
piece too.
Thanks and off-list replies welcome,
