Why don't Darrell, myself and Shelly get together on this this weekend and
hammer out the details.  Anyone else want to assist?

Hi Kelly,

Yes.  Though I have fallen behind on this in recent weeks, I have, in fact,
ordered a trial Ivocalize setup and am willing to move forward with it for
my purposes of accessibility advocacy, including blindcasting projects, of
course.  I'll have a bunch of time this weekend to move forward on some of
these things.
