Robert,

The folks that Michelle named have volunteered their time to answer emailed
technical questions about accessibility and computer games.

It's not a service of the SIG per se. In fact, there are several non-SIG
folks on the ALERT list.

It's also not specifically a recommendation service.
Whether or not they recommend products, services, or even particular
technical solutions is purely their call.

What the ALERTs thing does is offer several kinds of help to people like
Lynn, who need info on accessible games in education.
People who need help email their questions. ALERT Accessible Game Experts
email back answers.

It will be interesting to see what kind of response we get, given
Michelle's press release and our own publicity.

If you are interested in being an ALERT Accessible Game Expert,
particularly in mobility issues, please let me know.
There's absolutely no obligation, just a willingness to help people with
questions.
I didn't ask you in the first place because I don't know you
(electronically) as well as I do the other folks, and didn't want to
presume or impose.

You can ask Eleanor more about this at the Baltimore show.
She wants to meet you and the other SIG folks there.

John
