There is a body of research in this, spearheaded by IBM. I will see 
if we can have access to this. It was related to their work on the 
Kyoto City web site, see This is 
a good example of personal transformation for accessibility and 
language needs. There is also research done by SALT in collaboration 
with AccessForAll. Madeleine Rothberg can provide us with the 
documents. Liddy Neville conducted research while in Tskuba and 
published this in a number of journals. Her doctoral students at 
LaTrobe also conducted research in the area.
