I'm looking to make my next site totally accessible, including access for the people with text/aural browsers and wap users.

My questions:
1) does wap appear the same (roughly) as a text browser.
2) What is a good / common / free (:)) text browser I can use for testing?

Thanks tony for the site with the most broken links ever lol. I've done a little research and it turns out wap uses a completely different markup language based on xml, someone should have done their homework first...

I was under the impression that phones just kind of interpreted html pages in a very simplistic way. Oh well no faffing with wap for me. I'm not making two versions of the site lol.

Still looking for a decent text browser if anyone has used them before.

Ah. You are looking for Lynx

It is the text browser.
