Do they have to download it to see it Lynne?  if so, then they'd have to
have the associated software on their pc in order to see it.
 
what accessible events has, which is what the commercial meeting services
have, is a shared desktop such that you can see what the presenter is
showing you from another window on their desktop.  so, I could show you how
a new window eyes macro that I wrote is going to work, without anyone having
to own window eyes or have a copy of the macro.
 
 
thanks to you and Liz for the update though on Talking Communities.
Chip

talking communities client has a shared document section. That is the group
leader can put up a slide presentation for each user to see. 
However only one person can talk at a time.
There is a text chat area
Also each user can record the session on their own hard drive.

Oh sorry, different software:
 
in this case, you get *a lot* more than just a voice chat: you get a shared
desktop, so that all the participants of the meeting can see the powerpoint
presentation, or the Word document, you're making part of your presentation.
they each can actually read the document, each one having their own copy and
so being able to read at their own spot of the document.
 
It's not the same class of software as TeamTalk, Skype, or the talking
communities, which are only chat (except TeamTalk which throws in common
file sharing and video chat, but still isn't a shared document presentation
space).

I believe you can get the same access through Talking Communities, as on the
FCB Web page.  I'm not sure though.

Hi Everyone,
 
I'd really urge everyone to get one of these free accounts (before December
31) after viewing the demo provided on their home page.  especially so if
you belong to any committee or group.
 
It does appear that as a participant, you would have a distinct advantage if
you're using a braille display, as the screen changes under the control of
the presenter as they display for you a word document or a powerpoint slide
or a web page, and it's a little difficult to move around and listen to a
synthesizer at the same time as you are listening to the presenter speaking.
 
this aside, it's an amazing technical feat to have audio streaming, while
your pc is under remote control (in a way) as they cause various apps on
their computer to open, but which allow you to move around to read the
screen, and you can speak or write questions and comments to the presenter.
 
It's a great tool for a business meeting with documents to be discussed,
it's not as good as a telephone conference call if you're just needing to
hold a conversation; but it sure helps overcome the transportation problem,
and in many ways allows a participant to get more out of the documents being
discussed, since you're right there at a computer able to read them, than if
you were at the meeting in person, where you'd likely not have a computer.

Hi all,
 
below is a sales pitch for the SeroTech Accessible Event service.  the
interesting thing is that they are offering free basic accounts, for
personal use, if you sign up before December 31.  however, the free service
which comes with this type of account is free for life (they say).
 
the link in the press release for the sign up is incorrect; it's for a paid
type of account.  you should not enter your credit card number at any time
for the free type of account.
 
I believe the corrected link is:
 
http://accessibleevent.com/services/gratis/5/
 
I got there by going to the "home" link, and then choosing "sign up", and
then "basic".
 
this account allows you to host an online meeting with 3 attendees.  there's
a demo on the home page of the web site showing you what's possible in such
an online meeting.  no special software, other than a browser with flash, is
required.
 
enjoy.
 
Chip

Accessible Event makes meetings, lectures, and webinars fully accessible to
all participants, and no meeting is too large or too small for
<http://www.accessibleevent.com/> Accessible Event to handle.  We understand
that important meetings don't just happen in huge corporations.  To that
end, we've made a few changes that make it easier and more affordable than
ever to bring accessibility to even the smallest group event.  

 

First, any personal Accessible Event day pass or subscription now covers up
to ten attendees.  We've doubled the number of allowed attendees, but we
haven't doubled the price.  For $9.95 for a personal day pass, $39.95 for a
month subscription, or $29.95 per month for a year's subscription, you can
ensure that all your meeting content is accessible, including MS-Word
documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations and web pages. 

 

And while Serotek embraces the spirit of giving during every day of the
year, we wanted to present you with something extra special during the
holiday season.  From now through December 31, you can sign up for a free,
basic Accessible Event subscription entitling you to up to three attendees
per meeting.  Are you a blind student who needs access to classroom
presentations?  Do you hold a small group meeting every month and you've
been looking for a way to make it accessible?  Do you attend meetings which
utilize an inaccessible meeting platform and you're tired of not having the
same level of access as the other meeting attendees?  W hether running as a
standalone product or alongside other meeting solutions, Accessible Event is
perfect for your needs.  Use your free, Basic Accessible Event subscription
to become a full participant in every meeting you attend.  And the best part
is: while the ability to sign up for this free subscription ends on December
31, your access to it lasts a lifetime.  If you sign up between now and
December 31, your basic Accessible Event account will never expire. 

 

So give yourself or someone you know the gift of Accessibility Anywhere and
<http://accessibleevent.com/services/subscribe/1/?email=mommyenger@xxxxxxxxx
omhttp://accessibleevent.com/services/> sign up for Accessible Event today. 

 

To learn more about Accessible Event, including the basic subscription for
up to 3 attendees,  personal day passes and subscriptions for up to 10
attendees, and corporate day passes or subscriptions beginning at 25
attendees, visit  <http://www.accessibleevent.com/> www.accessibleevent.com 

or call (612) 246-4818. 

 

Happy Hollidays from the Serotek Team!
