Volunteers Needed to Assess Accessibility of Mozilla Web Site

Ken Saunders-4
Hi All,

SpreadFirefox.com will soon be launching a new version of the site (v.
3) with an entirely new layout and we are looking for volunteers to
head over to the staging site and kick the tires (so to speak) and
assess the state of its accessibility.

Although legally blind I am still sighted and have tested what I can
with my abilities and with whatever aids that I use but it would be
nice to send some feedback to the site's developers from others with
conditions that differ from mine including those of you who may be
using screen readers.

I've already commented on Bug 480852 (Assess accessibility for the
Spread Firefox redesign) on the accessibility issues that I have come
across and I hope that you will contribute to it too.

We have a great opportunity right now to point out any problems that
visitors may encounter when they visit the new site before the site is
launched because after that, getting things fixed becomes much more
difficult and expensive.

If you are already a member of Spread Firefox, you can use your
current SpreadFirefox.com credentials to access the staging site.
If by any chance you have problems with that, feel free to contact me.

I sincerely appreciate your time and any help that you may be able to
offer.

Take care.
Ken

Can I send this to a couple other lists with blind people on
them, or is this just for this list?

Have a great day,
Alex
