Hi Ron,

I've been talking with some members of the Google Apps for Education
Team about this and have offered to coordinate with ATHEN an
accessibility interest group to work with Google like we have done
with Blackboard and Elluminate/Blackboard. We are a Google Apps campus
so we definitely have a vested interest in this. So far Google has not
taken me up on this offer.

I can say that Google is keenly aware of the issue and is trying to
address it. We at NC State have built some relationships with the
Google Apps for Education Team so I am happy to coordinate an ATHEN
interest group if others are interested in participating.
