Accessify Forum is running on phpBB and even has a forum topic to 
discuss how to make the forum more accessible. Nigel Peck and Ian Lloyd 
have made many improvements to that installation already. Their notes 
may help you improve your installation.


I think a main problem with accessible forums is that they can't enforce 
the users to maintain accessiblility standards. I could easily go to the 
Accessify Forum and post a bunch of "click here" links in one post.

Good luck,
James Craig
