Hi, Kasondra. I'll think about this but don't know how much input I'll be able 
to give. <smile> I just wanted to congratulate you and hope it goes well! Good 
luck! Take care.

  Subject: [bookshare-discuss] my presentation


  I don’t think this is off topic because it has to do with Bookshare and 
reading.  I am doing a presentation on reading resources for people with print 
disabilities.  I am in an interdisciplinary training class at Utah State 
University.  The idea is to teach people going into professions like special 
education and social work how to work with disabled people.  I was asked to be 
in the class because I am a parent of disabled kids, and I am blind myself.  
The students were all given the opportunity to speak on projects that they were 
involved in that the class might be interested in.  I realized that a lot of 
the professionals we work with seem to be totally clueless about what resources 
are available for us to take advantage of the printed word.  I started out just 
wanting to talk about Bookshare, but I decided to talk about other resources 
that would fit different groups of people.  I am going to talk about NLS, 
RFB&D, and Newsline, in addition to Bookshare.  I will probably be doing this 
presentation in the next month.  I just wanted to tell you all that I am doing 
this, and possibly get you guys to give me any input.  Thanks.
