Correct me if I'm wrong here, but it's not _frames_ which are no good, it's
the software that the visually-impaired browsers use, in this instance.
Ergo, if their software won't read out "I have found two frames - pagemenu
and pagecontent", then that's a software issue and not the problem of the
website author.

Perhaps more obviously, nasty things like Flash or non-resizable screen
fonts _are_ worth worrying about for visually-impaired users. Removing the
Flash, and making the fonts re-sizeable (size=2 rather than size=10pt) is
pretty easy. (Though I currently sit in a greenhouse. Put those stones down.
We're working on it.)

Is this getting off-topic? Mmm, thought so.
