Hi Ron,

You are correct that it is difficult to set up and maintain. In the EPUB
reading space, we have an excellent example of collaboration on the testing
of reading systems.


And we still need more people to test the wide range of reading systems with
the wide range of Assistive Technology out there.

Subject: [Athen] Product evaluation database

Good morning all,

Once again an extreme need has surfaced and that is a need for a database of
educational product accessibility evaluations that are readily available.
This does not need to be a totally open resource, due to liability issues a
subscription or closed membership system would be find.

I am not talking about VPATS, in most instances they have shown to be not
worth the time it took to write them. What I am looking for are real
evaluations, that also include what was used for the evaluation. We have
talked about this a lot but nothing ever seems to come of it. Any insights
would be greatly appreciated.
