My view is that it's important to you and you've joined the community
so it's important to us ;-)

Actually we want to ensure that *all* user a11y needs are covered well
and you've identified a gap. I also see it as a part of a the need to
polish up 'alternative access' provision. The time is ripe for a good
discussion. We did set up the OSK-ng list a while back, but i think it
might be better done here in the view of the wider community.

Another areas is reading support. OK I'll stop whittering on and go
make some changes to the wiki today.

I agree with Will that we need input and discussion from people with
all sorts of skills to do the best possible job and to ensure we are
requirements driven.
