This is difficult to answer but there are AT vender representation on all 
the wai working groups.  They have been working with the WAI for years so 
much of the input you get from WAI representation is partly at least due to 
their input.  The AT venders also express their interest in what they 
support.  If you look at the documentation provided for their products, you 
will find their contributions.  It is also possible to write them directly 
through their admininstration with questions or to seek their input.

I don't know it either. I'd like to know.

What input have we gotten from which AT vendors?
