I attended a presentation at Google recently where they announced their
Google Apps for Education and raised the question of accessibility of their
apps, including Gmail. The engineers stated that they had completed an
accessibility review of the Google Apps, however, they would neither confirm
nor deny any information regarding the report. They did agree that there
were accessibility issues. If your institution is looking at Gmail, you may
want to consider building into the agreement a copy of the review itself.
