Nice start to 24 Ways 2010, Drew. I had no idea Google even offered this feature but it’s certainly an interesting and usable snippet.

@Jeroen I think it’s very difficult (nay impossible) for a graphical map to be fully accessible to screen readers. I think using the tools available to screen readers (namely alt tags on images) to their best is the most complete way to ensure accessiblility for visually-impaired users.

A detailed address on the alt tag with a pointer to detailed directions somewhere else on the page would be a good solution I feel.
