I concur with Gary. At work, I see what types of software people would
like
to use. I denied the use of Prezi because they were non-compliant.

>some organization or agency to tempt them with a contract (i.e., funds)?
In my neck of the woods, this would be a stretch. First they would need to
gain a Sole-Source Justification, and prove the software has something
that
meets a business need something else cannot. The only thing that pops into
mind is being able to show on the web and mobile devices. I would argue
that you could do it with straight HTML, while it would take longer, it
could be made compliant in an easier fashion. But if some group really
wanted to pay for it, I'd let them, but require the presentation to be
reviewed by myself or somebody from my team prior to posting.


Lucy- I haven't heard about the other two products to comment. However org
charts are messy to do. I'd most likely tell them to post it as an image
and give it an appropriate alt.
