i think that sounds great and goes along with the "positive press 
release" idea about putting out press releases when we've seen a 
company do something accessibility-positive in their games. i think 
it would be a great joint project and one that i can see us 
recruiting other game accessibility groups into the promotion of it. 
it would also work well with the mobygames/accessibility features 
present in games project.

since you guys have funders to answer to, it probably makes sense if 
you host it on your site and then we link to it from ours and call it 
a collaborative project so that we can devote sig time to updates on 
the project. ok, that was way too much info on that kind of "where 
stuff goes and who we credit" type stuff -- we're all on the same 
team, after all and all of us are in the SIG! :) but it's great to 
have lots of joint stuff going on because it only makes all of our 
efforts stronger!
