Suggestion: Provide information on optimizing websites for blind people.
Once upon a time, a blind applicant emailed me to point out that our website (in particular the Application for Graduate Admission) was not very blind-friendly. For example, if we have form fields arranged in a table and we don't have each field individually described with tags/attributes that the aural browser reads aloud, it can be hard for a blind person to determine what they're supposed to put in a field.
Such things had never crossed my mind. Right away I called Services for Students with Disabilities and made an appointment with someone who was going to help me figure out how to make our pages more blind-friendly. As I arrived for the appointment, this person took a phone call and continued to gab, knowing I was waiting. After 15 minutes someone else took pity on me and turned me loose on a computer with Jaws. I'd have been fine with some learning by trial and error, except they were having registration/validation issues with their copy of Jaws and it died repeatedly. Meanwhile a low-vision student was hovering, waiting to use it. Eventually I gave up and left, without having gained any useful knowledge.
I feel bad knowing I haven't made this better. But I don't have time/funds to buy Jaws and learn what works, what tags/attributes it speaks, whether its competitors have the same behavior, etc. Nor patience to go back to SSD.
It would really help if UNL had a go-to person who knew the behavior of the major aural browsers and could review a site and point out things that are not blind-friendly. It would also be helpful to have a resource (maybe a wiki page) listing common web dev mistakes and how to avoid/fix them, for those of us who don't have aural browsers and can't "see" for ourselves what works. (You'd think such a page would already exist but I'm having no luck with Google.)
