Google site to aid the blind

CNET "Google was set to unveil a Web search site on Thursday designed to help blind people find results that will work best with their text-to-speech software.
The new Google Accessible Search site, which will be available at early on Thursday, prioritizes the list of search results based on how simple the Web page layouts are, said T.V. Raman, research scientist in charge of the service.
For example, a user searching for 'weather' will find pages with a lot of other content on them. "
