Our website for the RNIB College has been given the RNIB's prestigious 'See It Right' status for meeting rigorous accessibility standards. This standard seeks to ensure that web sites are fully usable by visually impaired internet users.
Websites with an RNIB accessible website logo are designed to be accessible for everyone. This includes people with sight problems, hearing, mobility and cognitive impairments as well as people with dial-up, older browsers or newer technologies such as mobiles and PDAs.
We believe that all websites can be made accessible, yours as well. For all websites accredited with 'See It Right' check the RNIB Accessible Website Directory.

Cuttlefish, through our Pineapster music community, has supported the Summer Sundae Fringe Festival since its start in 2006. This year's festival is bigger than ever and now covers a whole two weeks of activities around Leicester. We've also used it as a test-bed for our new cSocial community building system.

Located in the heart of Leicestershire and the National Forest, Coalville is changing into a modern market town – a place which residents and businesses are proud to call their home.
As with many towns across the country that grew as mining towns, Coalville is starting to re-invent itself. We have ideas as to how the town could develop and how it could draw inspiration from the National Forest, but we now need you to get involved...

We were very pleased to hear that the Charnwood Borough Council website has been assessed in the 2009 SOCITM Better Connected survey as being one of only 13 Shire District Councils in England to have a website with "Excellent Content".
We moved Charnwood over to a new version of our Content Management System last year and it's great to see that the hard work, both within the council and at Cuttlefish, has paid off Well done all.

2008 was an important year for Cuttlefish. We moved to a new office, we decided to end our "Calico" joint venture and focus on purely Cuttlefish Multimedia Ltd, and we welcomed on board some great new clients whilst maintaining our ongoing relationships with others.
Naturally it's hard to predict what the future will hold, but we think the coming year will be even more significant for us. There is the economic situation of course, which will put even more pressure on us to continue to deliver great value web sites. And then there are some very interesting technologies that we think will be big in 2009.
The first of these is the "location-based Internet". This will enable custom content to be delivered to a mobile (and desktop) Internet device based on it's geographic location. We think that this is very exciting and has the potential to revolutionise how we all use the Internet. We already have significant mapping expertise and have recently moved in to Apple iPhone development so are looking forward to the opportunities that this will bring.
Then there is "cloud computing". We expect this "on demand" approach to web hosting and web application delivery to become increasingly important and intend to release cloud-hosted versions of our Content Management Systems in 2009.
If you want to know more about these technologies and our other plans for 2009 then please get in touch.
