I am involved in a project based around an accessible (well, it will be 
when I've de-bugged it) online community information system, Community 
Connect <http://www.community-connect.net>

Part of this project involves reviving a touch-screen kiosk that I 
developed and adding Festival and TRACE's EZ-Access as extra interfaces. 
  (The data is presented to the screen as compliant XHTML and coverted 
to SABLE voice XML using XSLT.)  Details at <http://www.tivis.net.au> 
I've done a proposal for developer workshops on the kiosk and some of 
the Community Connect architecture for OzeWAI in December.

My future plans involve microcontroller based mouse and keyboard 
'wedges' - similar to the Skipper idea, but doing all the work outside 
of the PC (or Mac).  Contact me off list if you're interested as some of 
the techniques are getting a little off-topic for this list, although an 
accessible Web-style interface remains at the centre of my application 
delivery strategy.
