I've set up a mailing list to discuss issues concerning disabled access
to technology at bay area post-secondary institutions.  The focus of
this list is just not technology, but can discuss such things as:

  What is a reasonable amount of time for a professor and assistants
  to spend on accessibility issues?
  Is it ethical for a professor not to better serve the non-disabled
  students by using the latest technology in order for disabled students
  to use technology?

  Is it the professor's responsibility or is it the university's
  responsibility, e.g. who provides the resources and training around

  Because technology is changing and because academia can be on the
  cutting edge of technology, what should be done when there are no
  community standards or the standards lag behind the technology?
  (The guidelines are already becoming more out of date with what the
  general community is / will be using in web technology.)

  Is it the professor's responsibility to make up for the community's
  technology gap?

  How much effort should a professor spend making course materials
  accessible for people who aren't his students?

  What co-ordination needs to be done with OCR in order that their
  findings or recommendations are consistant with the changing

  What are ways to address providing disabled students with role
  models of disabled adults who are technologically sophisticated?
