Search Results that Speak Volumes

Spotted on BBC News today: Speegle, the search engine that speaks its results and bears more than a passing resemblence to Google (no way, the company protests).

I’m with Julie on this one (see the article for comment) - a one-off search engine doesn’t really help blind or partially sighted people a huge amount - as soon as they’ve moved off that page they’ll have to use another screen reader anyway.

Anyway, the site didn’t even load when I tried it. How’s that for accessible? ;-) [Update: tried again later and got the site running but it wouldn't play ball on Firefox - plug-ins required]
