Welcome, Missy.
This list can't be beat for information.

  Hello, all. I just joined this e-mail list a couple of hours ago. I've 
downloaded a number of archived pod casts over the past couple of weeks, and 
have enjoyed listening to them a great deal. If nothing else, I've learned that 
I'm way behind when it comes to adaptive tech and other cool toys.
  Thanks to the good old  bureau of services for the visually impaired, I'm 
getting ready to upgrade from Windows 98 SE to Windows XP Pro with service pack 
2. Although I know that in the long run, the upgrade will be a good thing, I'm 
more than a little nervous about the actual upgrade process. I'm not sure what 
to expect, and am worried that I may be without a computer for an indefinite 
period until everything gets set up properly.
  If anyone is interested, I'd love to provide a few pod casts at some point: I 
could do a demonstration of Mobile Speak cell phone screen reader if one is 
still needed, and there are probably other things I could demonstrate or 
discuss if people are interested. I just am a bit worried because I've never 
done this type of thing before and don't want to mess up too terribly.
  Anyway, sorry for the rambling message. Perhaps I'd be best off waiting to 
participate in this community too actively until I get my computer out of the 
stone age. :)
  I've got some questions pertaining to a number of topics, but will post them 
in separate messages with relevant subject lines. Thanks for reading my 
rambling introduction, and I hope that everyone is having a great day!
