Hi Heidi,

I tried to reach Alberto via one of our colleagues at UIC and invited him to
work with our blackboard/WebCT Accessibility Interest Group
(http://cita.uiuc.edu/collaborate/blackboard) which some of our AThenpro
colleagues are part of it. He wrote to my colleague at UIC and it seems he
is very frustrated with the accessibility of BB and apparently not
interested to work collaboratively on identifying and resolving
accessibility issues he is facing with BB product.
