Hello =)
I'm from Germany and my English is _very_ bad. Sry for this o.o"

On my website many visitors are blind. They are not able to see something.
I am working for making my website accessible for all people with handycaps.

Would you please code a version of this gallery witch is accessible for all?

Standards: Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

at present the picture-describtion (Custom fields) is sufficient, but there are many things to change. Specially CSS instead of Tables.

My visitors will thank you =) and I too ^^

I agree that the non-standards-compliant layout of coppermine has to change in future versions (away from table nesting to css), but at the moment the code and layout are very much mixed up - there's little chance to separate it without starting to code coppermine from scratch (in fact, there have been efforts made to create table-less themes, but so far only 1 user has succeeded). We (the coppermine dev team) are aware of the inaccessability of coppermine for handicaped people.
We'll consider such things in future versions of coppermine (probably cpg2.x).
As a sidenote: don't get me wrong, but I think that there are apps like bbs where I think it's more important to have the abbility for handicaped people to be able to browse them - as coppermine is a photo gallery software, there's little point in enabling it for blind people explicitely.

Is it possible to create a templateset, which is not based on tables?

np. It is logical, that blind people do not look often in the gallery. As I said at present the picture-describtion (Custom fields) is sufficient.
I only wanted to give a suggestion for future versions.

I will try to edit the templates by myself. Specially by editing tabs for direkt jumping to the describtion for blind people. I don't know whether I'll be successfull but I hope so.

Theoretically: yes - rbl has managed to do so - see http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=875 , but he can't share it, as he has extensively modified the coppermine core code. Like I said: there is table stuff all over the place in coppermine itself - it hasn't been built to avoid tables, tables are the "centerpost" of the current coppermine core code. All you can do is have less tables by editing the /themes/yourtheme/template.html file and skip all tables there, but it will only result in a cleaner output, not clean output.
