I've been working on a Census  based project for a couple of years and 
we were forced into 508 compliance for the interface.  While we didn't 
target any specific target customer, we did gain quite a bit of 
experience though related to what can/can't be done with Mapping and 
other web Reader types.

Let me know if this is of any interest to you.
