In case not everyone has heard Dick Brown has changed jobs within
Microsoft - he has moved back to an editor position within MS Press
(Dick's background was in User Assistance or product documentation
before he joined the Accessible Technology Group 3 years ago).

FrontPage 2002, which shipped as part of Office XP, does not contain an
accessibility wizard.  Although, as Terry Crowley and others have
pointed out, there are third party products that can be used with
FrontPage to check for accessibility.

Hello,

In the minutes that you refer to, Dick Brown took an action item to
forward
more information to the ER list about a FrontPage Accessibility Wizard.
It
is my understanding that an accessibility wizard for FrontPage does not
exist.  I do not know if one is currently in development.  Perhaps
someone
from Microsoft could provide more information on this?
