LIFT Text Transcoder

I am wondering if anyone on this list has any experience with or an opinion
about the LIFT Text Transcoder
html). I just got off the phone with someone from a large university, and
they are looking into purchasing this product for the university. I don't
know anything about the product except what is on their web site, and I
realize UsableNet LIFT products are reputable, but somehow this feels like a
quick fix, too good to be true solution to their web accessibility problems.
I felt a bit alarmed that they think this can meet their government required
accessibility problems. Any thoughts? Is it better than nothing?

Looking forward to your thoughts.
