RNIB Scotland: Go! Shop award winner

Tesco won an award for website accessibility in 2010, not all me obviously, though I did develop the front-end modules (HTML & CSS) for the homepage and favourites. Alongside some of the nifty JavaScript widgets.

Eight Scottish businesses have won prizes in the special award scheme to highlight companies that do most to help blind and partially sighted people.

The Go! Shop Awards scheme – launched by the Royal National Institute of Blind People Scotland, in partnership with Caledonian Business School with Glasgow Caledonian University – aims to encourage improvements that would make shopping, travel, leisure, banking and even web-surfing more accessible to people with sight loss.
