Google broken for some blind users?

Just finished reconfiguring Dolphin Guide for a customer after Google's nagging about making themselves the home page and downloading Chrome [not compatible with Guide] broke the ability to search in Dolphin Guide.

In case anyone else has this problem, the old 'accessible search' Google page is located at:
»www.google.com/cse/home?cx=00018···orsc6mbq

If Google did this on purpose, they're being evil.

Re: Google broken for some blind users?

It's meant for use with a screen reader [JAWS or Dolphin Guide or similar software]. What's merely visually disturbing to you and me makes the page unusable for someone using a screen reader.

That page used to be a lot easier to find. The old link for it now returns a 404.
