I know there was a group called the Accessibility Forum that was inititally
supported by the General Services Administration (GSA). It was basically a
collaboration among those in industry/government/users who would be impacted
by the passage of Section 508 in the E & IT communities.

One of their past projects was to develop some AT and E & IT
interoperability (or at least identify the need to develop such
interoperability) -

Hopefully, something tangible comes of this "new" alliance between AT and
the IT industry.
