Judging by today's Google logo (spells "Google" in Braille), the company is either (a) celebrating Louis Braille's birthday (he was born on January 4, 1809), (b) about to engage in some new accessibility initiative, or (c) both.  Anybody know?

The company has already dropped some interesting hints regarding its interest in accessibility and OpenOffice. Perhaps this is a clue regarding the technology that will be inside the apparently forthcoming Google PC (predicted here, and practically announced here). A Google PC that includes a productivity suite with advanced accessibilty technologies could go a long way towards addressing the concerns of those who are challenging or opposing standardization on the OpenDocument Format (on the basis of "inaccessibility").
