>The challenge of web accessibility raises issues of both policy and
>technology. This session features experts in each of these two areas.
>Policy guru Tracy Mitrano says: "Developing a web accessibility policy has
>been one of the greatest but most rewarding challenges I have faced in
>creating an IT policy framework at Cornell. With the EDUCAUSE Live!
>audience, I would like to share some of the struggles and stories about
>that process and what accessibility, education, and the web have come to
>mean to me as a result."
>Technology expert Harry Hochheiser summarizes: "Although the need for
>accessible web sites is widely accepted, many developers are still
>uncertain about the costs and limitations associated with designs that
>account for users with varying skills, capabilities, and computing tools.
>Fortunately, these problems are solvable: with proper planning and design,
>web sites can be interactive, engaging, highly functional, and accessible.
>The combination of accessibility guidelines and automated evaluation tools
>can help any developer build sites that are more accessible and usable for
