Many years ago just as the Web was exploding (I think it was 1996!) we created a symbol for Web Accessibility. We didn't want a symbol that represented a person, a disability or a technology - rather we wanted a symbol that indicated the world within those pages could be unlocked and accessed due to proper designed. With the advent of WAI symbols representing site compliance, our symbol became kinda moot.

I don't think you could even find this on our site and the ftp link cited no longer works since it has been years since we promoted it - but it's free to drag onto your desktop and use : http://ncam.wgbh.org/webaccess/symbolwinner.html
