    Shawn says: My first response to Maximum Accessibility was great big sigh of joy in discovering that it is in large print so that I can actually read it without much difficulty. I have only had a chance to skim through it briefly and see that it provides lots of examples and anaylsis of current Internet sites. It looks like a very good addition to the available literature.
