Well, I click on the "What is Freeview?" button, and get a black
rectangle. That seems like a bigger problem to me (after a while it did
display a progress bar). What I got in the end was about four paragraphs
of text... 60 seconds to display a page must be some sort of record.
technologies seems like a losing battle to me. It was a relevant
argument about five years ago, but it seems like you might have to
accept that you've lost. I don't see technical reasons that they
couldn't be made more discoverable for things like screen readers
though, especially given web crawlers can get inside them now...)
