[access-uk] Re: More Sight Village

Hi Carol,

In my view, In Touch have shyed away from technology for too long.  They
should have occasional technology whole programmes, not just five minutes.
For example, Sight Village happens every year, and is important to a lot of
blind people, so it wouldn't hurt In Touch to give a whole programme over to
it.  That's my view for what it is worth, but as for your post below, I
completely agree with you.

All the best

Damon,

With respect, still only comparatively few of us use computers on the
Internet and are sufficiently up to speed to go and get podcasts.  It's
surely very important that the biggest and best exhibition of the year
should be covered well and as fully as possible for those who just don't,
for one reason and another, have this access as yet.  I didn't hear "In
Touch" but, if indeed it was only a five minute coverage, I'd have been very
disappointed.
