I didn't want to say who it was, but yes, I was referring to Jake. Excellent 
engineer!

Oh yes, Jake Brownell!  He is from Illinois, like 
me.  (smile)  And you are right, his degree was in computer 
science.  I remember that from some of his postings on the list.  He 
also has a website.

One of our engineers joined Bookshare several years ago, worked part-time 
for Bookshare while he attended college, graduated with a degree in computer 
science (I think), and took the job that was offered to him by Bookshare after 
he left college. He's been a full employee for probably a year now or maybe 
longer.

Re: problem with daisy book

Hi Monica, I think Bob was actually 
talking about the engineers behind the physical devices themselves, not the 
bookshare staff.  smile. For myself, in ten years of using speech 
recognition software, I have yet to talk to a developer or engineer for the 
product I use that is disabled or even uses the product themselves. They all 
use 
a keyboard and mouse.
