Have an opinion on how legal issues and technical standards impact your work? Does accessibility impact your development? Does it affect your customers? Does it affect you? You might be interested in providing recommendations for updates or feedback to to the refresh of the U. S. Section 508 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_508) Accessibility Standards.This is important because many people are working in topics related to accessibility that contribute to the Section 508 refresh but are unaware of this public activity.
This effort is being coordinated on an international scale. This is an open process, please consider participating! More information is available via http://teitac.org along with the notice via http://www.access-board.gov/sec508/update-index.htm.

Note to screen reader users
The option to post comments on each post is accessible but somewhat confusing in first time use. Activating the "# comments" link will get you to a text box to leave your comment. After the comment box you'll navigate to the Choose an identity section. If you don't have a blogger account your can use the radio button to select "Other" or "Anonymous". You'll still have to navigate past the fields used when you login or use the "other" option which asks for your name and your web page. Finally you'll get to the bottom of the page and have the option for publishing your comment.
Feel free to play with the comment section and I'll periodically delete any test posts.
