NASA has initiated a service called Iliad designed to make the Internet more accessible to people with visual impairments who have difficulty using graphical browsers like Netscape or Explorer. Users can e-mail requests to NASA for keyword searches of the Net. The Iliad system executes the search over multiple search engines and e-mails the results to the requestor. Iliad allows its users to access the resources of the Internet using text-based e-mail.
