Check out the videos from Fresno state.  Highly recommended by Patrick Douglas
Crispen, the driver of the Internet Tourbus.

Make sure you have had a chance to review the second, longer one before you
launch on developing something in this space.

And it's great that you are interested in pursuing this.  The problems and
solutions are different enough so that anyone in a position to do anything
about the accessibility of information products (by which I mean web pages,
infrastructure services, etc.) should have a rudimentary grasp of the ways
that they are different.

Thanks to Kelly Ford for passing along the Tourbus issue where this is 
discussed.
