Yeah, I was surprised to find the site was browseable with lynx the
cat, but as you said, downloading is still a no-go. Chris has written
to me privately saying that there is a ftp site, but it doesn't accept
anonymous logins. Chris suspects that you could log into it if you
registered for an account, but to do that, he says you have to answer
a captcha. Chris, it sounds like more people besides just me are
interested, so you might want to post the ftp info to the list,
instead of just sending it to me privately, but do what you think

Hart has also written to me privately, expressing disappointment with
their site. That makes 3 of us who aren't happy campers. I'm still
going to give them feedback, once I've put together a list of urls for
them to browse through, but I don't know how much of a difference an
e-mail from 1 blind guy will make. So, if you're unhappy with wrn.org
at the moment, I'd suggest that you voice your displeasure to them as
well. If more people write in with complaints of inaccessibility,
they're more likely to sit up, and take note.
