The kit consists of little wooden sticks which you must stick in your poo and transfer this to a little dent in a card. Repeat this from a different portion of the poo and transfer into a second dent. Repeat for 3 days. The solution I envisage is collecting 3 stool sample tubs from your doctor, do the necessary bowel work then return the samples plus kit to him to do the rest. Of course, the original complaint about shortcomings in accessibility is perfectly valid. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Tony Sent: 07 September 2011 11:12 To: Terry Robinson; BCAB Discussion List Subject: Re: [BCAB] AN EXAMPLE OF NOT THINKING ACCESSIBILITY THROUGH Hello While knowing nothing about the test, would it be possible to do by feel? Are the 3 window areas raised? In that case a solution might be to use polythene gloves. These should be supplied with the Braille/audio directions. I think the principle here is that if something is inaccessible we need to ensure that providing a solution costs the person who provided the inaccessible original money. Sadly, learning seems to only come through pain.
