In May 2007 I counted how many people mentioned accessibility in the Tasks 
and Interests Survey. My results:

<http://projectcerbera.com/blog/2007/05#accessibility>

A few days ago I repeated the count:

<http://projectcerbera.com/blog/2008/03#day11>

The summary:

[[[
Only 2% of HTMLWG Participants had recorded their interest in accessibility 
by May 2007. 4.5% have now done so.

Recorded interest has more than doubled from from 2% to 4.5% over the past 
10 months.

If you are interested in improving the accessibility features of HTML5, 
please say so in the Tasks and Interests Survey:

<http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/40318/tasks83/results>

Only 25% of Participants has answered the survey. This has risen from the 
16% who had answered in in May 2007.

If we take the people who fill in the Tasks and Interests Survey to be 
representative of the group as a whole, interest has risen by 50% from 12% 
to 18% over the past 10 months. But only 4.5% have actually said so in the 
survey.

See you in another 10 months. :-)
