I am trying to use MWPSK to develop a number of community sites for local not-for-profit organisations.
The major issue facing us at the moment is that of accessibility. I wonder if there might be a way for a user logged on to a site to be presented with a choice of themes? For instance, a high visibility theme could easily be generated with the new theme generator, but not every visitor to the site would want to use such a theme.
Any ideas? phil stedman

Another related issue, is the need for an audio alternative for the anti-bot feature, so that blind or nearly blind visitors can use the feature.

It should be possible to add theme slection at the front-end.  This could be something to look at as a contrib project, once these get underway. 

With this in mind, it would be good to get some sort of formal "feature request" capability in place - does codeplex have anything like this?  Ideally, it should be possible to vote on features, which could then be executed either as core features, or in a contrib project.

I also agree that the anti-bot could be improved, possibly with one of the web-service based versions out there.  I'm sure I've seen one that allows audio output also....

For my part, I'd like to see adoption of the project into the core project, so we can at least get near to achieveing compliant/accessible sites.  It does however, (I recall from bitter experience), require fixes in all the themes to do this...

It strikes me that there's a good match between Not For Profit's and this CMS, so the more accessible we can make it, the better.

Just my 2 pence...
