Points to Remember

Fix the Web is an outside service so the ATbar team cannot help you with any communication you may receive having chosen to send any web accessibility issues to the Fix the Web volunteers.

Fix the Web have more information on their website about volunteering and supporting their goal to make surfing the web easier for us all.
