Hi Sean,

I was at a White House Summit on Disability & Inclusive Technology this
past Monday. They discussed the prevalence of this problem & noted the
Teach Access initiative (teachaccess.org) that is being spearheaded by
a partnership between industry & institutions of higher education. I have
the names & organizations who gave the presentation. If you would like that
information. Just contact me off list.

Best to you,
