The last thing I heard from AHG2015 was that Terrill Thompson was heading this effort for further investigation. but I suspect that he is busier than most of us.

There was also talk on the EDUCAUSE IT Access group of similar need. The challenges are
1. format and how the info should be used
2. keeping the information current, or if not, how to manage its relevancy
3. liability of institution and sensitive to vendors.

Hi all. A couple of years ago, after an Accessing Higher Ground Conference, some of us were collaborating on a "Clearinghouse" of AT software, programs, etc. It stalled. So, I am wondering if anyone has a list of software that has been approved or not via their purchasing dept. due to accessibility issues.

My campus has a very active Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) Committee. We are close to hiring an end-user to review accessibility. I want to inquire if any other University(s) have already reviewed software and would be willing to share? I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
