Going with the random musings theme of my blog, here are a few tidbits.
Twitter and Facebook
Postings to the blog have been a bit slow of late. In part this is because I have been spending more of my online time on Twitter and Facebook. You can follow me on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/kellylford. My Facebook profile is at http://www.facebook.com/klford. Twitter tends to be accessibility related info and Facebook more of a personal nature.

Room for Improvement in NFL Field Pass Accessibility
Initially I was very disappointed to see the service switched to Flash and used it in a completely inaccessible fashion. Work arounds of using a low bandwidth version of the page and launching game audio from scores pages have resolved the blocking nature of the change. That said, the fact that the player itself still fails to use Flash in an accessible fashion is a disappointment. Audio control of the player for example remains inaccessible. One would hope for better of a leading sports league. Accessibility should not mean finding these work arounds in the first place.
