Hi Penelope,

What about starting with the personas introduced by Mark Pilgrim in Dive
into Accessibility [1]? Although the book targets web designers, the
personas are also valid for desktop use. As a non-disabled software
specialist who tries to include accessibility in my projects, I have
found the personas in that book very useful to understand challenges
faced by disabled users and how I could help alleviate them.
Furthermore, this book is published under the GNU Free Documentation
License [2] so there should be no problem in using its content.
