Hi, folks! As we attack the technological accessibility issue here on our campus, our TECH team is seeking guidance on locating a consultant. We are looking for ideas for a consultant that can help us determine a realistic and sustainable path to accessibility (web, video, university maintained applications, 3rd party vendor/app vetting, etc.). Ideally, this consultant would be a person/firm who specializes in higher ed accessibility.

Any suggestions come to mind?

Subject: [Athen] Evident Active Texbook accessibility

Ohio State is wondering if anyone has experience with this software. http://evidentpoint.com/active-textbook.htm
There is a possibility this will be used by an e-text platform and we are looking for information on the accessibility of the output, of course assuming good input.
Any info you have would be appreciated.
