Increasingly visually impaired people will be able to locate and use information independently, as sighted people already do.</p> <p><a href="http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue24/in-vision" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue24 feature article ann chapman bbc british library cerlim ibm ifla library association library of congress manchester metropolitan university rnib ukoln university of bath w3c isle project gutenberg web accessibility initiative accessibility archives ascii bibliographic data browser cataloguing cd-rom copyright data database digital audio file format further education graphics html ict internet explorer java linux metadata multimedia national library ocr opac operating system optical character recognition perl portal repositories research resource discovery search technology software standards url video Thu, 22 Jun 2000 23:00:00 +0000 editor 701 at http://live.ariadne.ac.uk Access to Newspapers and Journals for Visually Impaired People: The Talking Newspaper Association of the UK http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/tnauk <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue10/tnauk#author1">Neil H.
