Hi Hadi:

By any chance, are the results available yet? I've already talked to the director of a local disability organization who's looking at acquiring a web conferencing system in the near future and is extremely interested in making sure it's accessible.

Many thanks.

Here at the University of Illinois we tested and evaluated several Web
Conferencing Tools namely Elluminate, Adobe Connect, Saba Centra, Talking
Communities, and soon Wimba. We would like to publish the features and
accessibility support comparison between these products at the Accessing
Higher Grounds Conference next week.

I will post the result to this list in about 10 days.
We contacted all the vendors except Saba Centra about our findings and they
all showed strong interest win working with us collaboratively to improve
the accessibility of their products. If you or anyone who is interested to
be part of this collaboration project, please drop me a note.
