A 60-mile coach ride may sound like a nightmare, but commuting can be an economical option
Christopher Forsythe's insight:

Strict reality. As for me, sometimes cost o living and travelling from far locations are much cheaper. I've spent 30 minutes on travelling to college every day. But this time you can read or prepare for your classes, actually.

Remember however that the use of icons and infographics needs to take into account principals of Universal Design so that people of all ability levels can "read", understand and use. JE Sleeth OPC Accessible Design consultants since 1991

I disagree Jane. It would be great if everything were able to be accessible to everyone, but that is simply not the reality. We can't homogenise visual art into an accessible form, simply because some people can't see the fine details. That would be as wrong as never considering visually impaired persons, for example.
