Have you got great IT skills? Want to put them towards a good cause?

The charity Citizens Online has launched a new campaign to recruit 10,000 volunteers to help make the internet more accessible to people with disabilities.

Fix the Web is a new site that will enable older and disabled people to report internet sites they find difficult to use. The volunteers will report on sites where the text is hard to read, where they are set up for non mouse users, or where the layout is not suitable for people with visual impairment or other disability. Fix the Web will enable people to report problem sites via the site or via text and Twitter.
