Terrill is aware of what we're planning, just doesn't have details. Good to see there is more pressure out there.

The Educause IT Accessibility Constituent meeting began a fire alarm that cleared the convention center. When we reconvened Sue began the meeting with an overview of the agendas at the prior year's conference calls.
The last 15 minutes of the meeting was given to the discussion of creating a product testing group; a topic that has been raised many times in the past without significant progress for the many reasons discussed in this article. The Inside Higher Ed article gives much better coverage of the topic than could be obtained in another way, because it includes interviews conducted after the meeting.
