HiSoftware was contracted by Microsoft to develop a kit that will include full source that is supposed to address many of the accessibility issues people raise in SharePoint deployments. The big push here is reduce / eliminate the need for custom development to reach WCAG 1.0 AA and the US government's Section 508. The kit will be generally available in late October 2007 with an update coming in mid December 2007.
Interested in getting on the private beta for v1 and sinking your teeth into the AKS as early as mid September 2007? Check out the SharePoint Team Blog pre-announcement post linked below.
This is a welcomed addition to the Web Content Management world in MOSS 2007! Looking forward to digging into this one!
