In a recent enquiry about a job teaching accessibility I was told that there
is a job description available as a PDF. I hope it translates nicely - I
haven't had time to try yet (and don't have acrobat).

  just to add to this.  if you think for a second that scanning hard
  copy and performing ocr on it is an ideal, think again.  Even with the
  best ocr available today, there is still much editing to be done and
  scanning the documents takes time that could be better used doing
  something more productive especially when that document is already
  available in if not accessible at least convertable electronic form. 
  I too faced these challenges with agencies that services those with
  disabilities.
