News today:

Adobe committed $300 Million to President Obama's Connect ED Initiative.

They're earmarking the money for software and "professional development" for
students and teachers in the creative areas, as well as Captivate and
e-Learning products.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Adobe committed some of those dollars to
accessibility issues, such as:

. Making accessible e-Learning materials.

. Making accessible videos and other presentations.

. Making accessible handouts, books, and other regular learning
materials.

Maybe someone can contact Adobe insiders directly about this?
