Web Course in a Box provides a good balance between functionality and accessibility. It should be note that the      
designer view is in a framed environment and would result in considerable difficulty designing a course for an      
instructor using adaptive technologies to operate the Web interface. The student views are quite accessible, but      
default images do not include ALT text. Fortunately linked icons are accompanied by alternative      
text links which reduces the need for image ALT text.
