Accessing the mobile web: myth or reality?

BECTA, a UK government agency focusing on the use of technology throughout learning, recently invited me to contribute and article on mobile accessibility.

While demand for the mobile web is growing, mobile web content is yet to mature, with many problems of usability and accessibility that are reminiscent of desktop web content ten years ago. Added to this are the specific problems associated with mobile browsing such as size of screen display (viewport), handset capability context (being outside, in noisy places, differing light, time restricted), and technology support (lack of JavaScript, Flash, CSS cascading stylesheets and so on).
