Hi Barbara,Thanks so much for thinking of me! I had read something about this project some time ago. This provided me with a good update. I may try and contact the person at Columbia.
How are you?? I am sure you are busy as always! How are your daughters? What are they up to now.
Best wishes for a Happy, healthy New Year ! Never too late for good wishes, right?
Once again, I really appreciate receiving this attached article. Fondly, Ellen At 03:51 PM 10/16/2007, you wrote:
"Read This To Me" is a free reading service for the blind, powered by volunteers and Internet collaboration. <http://www.readthistome.org/>http://www.readthistome.org/ "Read This To Me" allows blind and low-vision people to have printed documents read to them over the phone. All the blind person needs is a phone line and a fax machine (no computer is required.) Here's how it works: 1. The blind person (whom we'll call the "client") faxes the document to be read to the "ReadThisToMe" toll-free fax number: 1-877-333-8848. The first page of the fax needs to be a cover page that includes the client's first name and callback (voice) phone number. The document itself can be just about anything: a handwritten letter, a bill, a label from a can of food, a multi-page magazine article -- just about anything that can be faxed. 2. One of ReadThisToMe's volunteer readers will call the client back and read the document. 3. That's it! The service is available throughout the U.S. An audio version of this information is available by dialing 1-877-333-8847. -- No virus found in this incoming message.Checked by AVG Free Edition.
