Inaccessible airline websites - 31/01/2012

20 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 31 January 2012

Bmibaby are being sued by RNIB for having an inaccessible website. The airline say they are taking steps to improve the situation and are offering customers the option of a low cost phone number until it's fixed. Hugh Huddy from the Royal National Institute of Blind People wants website designers to make sites accessible from the start so that blind and partially-sighted people are not excluded from booking flights as and when they choose.

Bristol's new museum M Shed has recently won a Jodi award for its Penfriend audio information project.
Cheryl Gabriel went to the launch and met Paul Sullivan who had the idea of using this labelling device to provide information about the exhibits for its blind visitors.
