hello folks,I got this off several of my lists, and thought any of us could use it for explorations and just a new way to say hi to folks.
I herd of this second life virtual world quite a while back, but the clients were not accessible, so had no way to poke my nose, or other parts into it.

Hi, The university of nevada in Reno recently developed an application called TextSL which allows visually impaired persons to access the popular virtual world of Second Life using a screen reader.
