aloha, again!

in my original post, i neglected to include the following information:

Working Groups and Current Projects

The AIA conducts its activities via working groups composed of 
representatives of member companies, each focused on one project.

The first four AIA projects include:

  * UIA Automation/Express Specification: Cross-industry review of the 
    specification and work to extend the specification to include 
    support for rich documents, such as those with tables 

  * Internet Explorer Support of Web ARIA via UIA Express: Work to 
    enhance Microsoft's IE browser to support these additional 
    specifications 

  * Interoperability of Accessibility APIs: UIA and IAccessible2: Work to 
    extend UIA and IAccessible2 so that accessibility functionalities of 
    products built to these specifications can be interoperable

  * Common Keyboard Shortcuts for AT Products Used with Web Browsers: 
    Work to develop a set of keyboard shortcuts that can provide 
    consistent device command functionality across different browsers

Additional projects, as approved by the AIA Steering Committee, will 
follow

i would be particularly interested in ascertaining how this work will 
sync with that being developed at the W3C and other standards-setting 
fora...
