Kelvin Marsh, M0AID is bringing together
resources for disabled radio amateurs in a
new web site to be found at www.active-
elements.org. Working with Quentin, GW3BV
and Chris, G5VZ Kelvin is publishing
accessibility evaluations of amateur radio
equipment, spoken word manuals and audio
Kelvin says, “Blind and partially sighted
radio amateurs often use standard equipment
that might easily seem impossible to operate.
They can be incredibly resourceful but do
need to be informed about what's available.
Amateurs with other disabilities also need to
know if equipment is accessible or whether
adaptations are available to make it so.
Active Elements attempts to draw together
experience and knowledge gained by disabled
operators from all over the world and make it
available to anyone with an interest.”
Kelvin's team began work on the site during
last autumn, building a range of evaluations,
reviews and recordings plus links to
resources available on other sites. The site
is fully accessible and combines an
attractive visual design with clear text
while also being optimised for screen reader
software like Jaws.
Development of the site continues and the
formal launch of Active Elements is planned
for 1st March 2013.
If you would like more information on Active
Elements or would like to arrange an
