Widgit Point: Symbol Support for the Web
Widgit Point is new software that allows website owners to add symbol support for their websites. Visitors to sites that use Widgit Point need only hover their mouse over a word and the symbol or symbols for the word will appear. You can see it in action on the Ability.net website. An introductory video and technical description are also available.
Kudos to Widgit for again harnessing the power of the web for accessibility. Let's hope this is broadly adopted!
(Thanks to Barrie at One Switch for bringing this to my attention.)
