Some DDA related matters

Just want to mention these : 1. A campaign has started in response to plans by mobile phone operater Orange to withdraw their Wildfire service. This service which many people may never have heard of, allows users to operate their mobile phone via voice commands and a 'virtual' computerized assistant. This has been of great benefit to visually impaired mobile phone users who will face a big loss if the service is withdrawn. Look at the campaign here . Some Wildfire details here (may bit a bit old) Another Wildfire petition here 2. Legal action using the DDA in Brighton's North Laine. This highlights to the business community the need to recognise the needs of ALL customers. Read here.
