Has anyone ever had a contract, tender or work proposal for a voice based
web site?

I ask this as I have a government department (via and agency) who wants me
to complete transfering a site into a CMS.  I have plenty of experience in
developing for web accessibility and screen readers, but I have to rewrite a
cover letter to address these issues as it seems they cannot find anyone
with enough experience in this area, and to me it appears that screen
readers would be the technology used, or is there something else?  I can't
get any other information from them.  Most of the other W3C technologies in
this area (VoiceXML / Aural CSS) that I know of are not really supported at
present, or am I wrong?

Dept has established a Voice website to inform its personnel about the Dept
Voice Network;  Voice Policy and Procedures;  and information of the
features and functionality for all standard Voice equipment in the Dept
Voice environment, to enhance client knowledge and skills and maximise
productivity in using Dept Voice equipment.

The website was constructed in Dreamweaver about a year ago.  It now
requires conversion to HIVE, in order to maintain consistency with CSIG
website management requirements, and much of the current information is
inaccurate.  The conversion to HIVE is currently about 90% complete, but
requires the engagement of a consultant to complete, and to maintain
currency of the website on a regular basis.
