I thought this was rather interesting on at least one level, the fact that I have several choices to get this notice read, which may possibly not be immediately available to many other blind people I could have someone sighted read it to me, thereby providing a privacy issue, not to mention some inconvenience. The other choice would be to scan the thing, using equipment that many people can't afford If anyone cares, the phone number to make your format choice is: 1-877-708-1776. If you've applied for benefits, or are currently receiving them, use that number and enjoy the time spent at it. _______________________________________________ fcb-l mailing list fcb-l@xxxxxxx http://www.acb.org/mailman/listinfo/fcb-l Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
