[bksvol-discuss] Re: A Note About Accessible Texts

Hi Chela!

I'm glad someone is trying to get accessible literature into the hands of print disabled people around the world. If people can read and have access to a wide variety of reading material, they can learn anything they desire. Sadly, there always seem to be tight fisted opposers to such a good idea.

An effort is afoot to allow for sharing of special-format materials, primarily braille and DAISY, across borders, thus potentially giving all blind people access to more literature.

Not surprisingly, many interests in the US oppose this plan:

"If you go without playing the trumpet for one day, no one knows, two days, only you know, and more than three days without practicing, girl you better look out, because everyone will know!" Today, I find myself constantly saying those words, just to get myself going, to not give up, and it works. Since I learned to play the trumpet at the tender age of 10, I have spent so much passion and much diligence with that instrument that I will not give up on it. Sometimes my instrument puts me into awkward situations where I feel like they won't ever end, but the trumpet gives me a lot of hope with the majestic, crystal-clear sound it brings to my ears.
