To add:

Some people can't really get the "technical" theory together but, need the 
computer just as much as the rest of the world does.  For them, a series of 
nice recordings of skilled users of Jaws and other speech and audible program, 
succeeding and sort of describing as they are going along so, would, I believe, 
be an enormous help.

A very thoughtful world would realize that by default, many, won't be able to 
be adept at using computers, just as, many, will!

Everybody can breathe and eat and such, but, everybody can't perform all skills 
with an equal degree of proficiency.

I've known many people with all of their vision, and other faculties, but, 
couldn't even, drive a car, nor, swim and more!

  I would score accessibility as an 8.  Are you doing a survey?

      Charles, 
      I have taken online courses at TCC, and will be taking another in the 
fall.
      Once you learn to navigate the Blackboard web page, it is fairly 
accessible.  Blackboard is the main page for most colleges and universities.  
Course work may involve other applications, such as Excel, Word, Access, and 
PowerPoint.  While these programs are not as accessible, instructors are very 
helpful in making materials easier to use.  I even had communication with a 
blind professor at FSU who consulted with one of my professors.  This was 
regarding an online course in macroeconomics.
      I hope this information is helpful.

        Anyone taking online courses in our group?

        Are you getting the job done independently?

        Has any leaders of the blind made a list of schools and universities 
which are accessible and, not accessible?

        Is it a website?

        Thanks!
