On Nov 1, I attended a presentation by Hi Soft on Cynthia Says.

I gave out 10 quick-tips cards to people who were unfamiliar with WAI.

The presenter was Dana Louise Simberkoff.

Cynthia Says includes Section 508 checking:

They are the providers of this product, originally created by
Cynthia Waddell:  cynthia.waddell@icdri.org

This group's meetings are inspiring.
P.J Gardner is the principal organizer of the Information Architects group.
"P.J. Gardner" <pjgardner@boston-ia.org>

I also met Dan Revellese, their director of corporate sales.

The Hisoft website is http://www.hisoftware.com

On that page is a list of organizations that use their product;
without automatic refreshes to update those organization's urls,
I had to move the cursor off the image to get the alt text on the
next one to update -- learned by experiment.

I received a booklet:
