Hello all

I am not working directly these days as a researcher with the Canadian  
Internet Use Survey at Statistics Canada but hope to return there and  
am in the same workplace with that survey still. I can still put you  
in touch with the survey manager and help you navigate the survey  
documents or if you need some custom data. So do not expect more  
Internet studies papers from me soon.

I am studying a course in web accessibility guidelines and thought I  
would share a tool by one of the teachers of this course. This tool  
allows one to check web pages for problems with accessibility based on  
WCAG 2.0 guidelines

ATRC Web Accessibility Checker : Web Accessibility Checker

I hope you find this useful if you are making web pages or researching  

It took me about 45 minutes to update three index pages from their old  
1990's html to pass at level AAA.
