Anyone going to sell one or two on Recycle-IT?

Subject: [access-uk] Obsolete Accessibility 

Last night's In Touch has caused me to reflect on the Taylor frame and
what makes an accessibility product obsolete. I remember the Taylor
frame from schooldays and thinking about it, I cannot come up with a
product which was better able to demonstrate the layout of an
arithmetical problem. Many's the sum I've had to calculate using the
frame. A calculator may get the answer right more often than me but it
doesn't help in showing how the problem can be worked out. If we are
really to achieve greater numeracy among the visually impaired, perhaps
it's time the Taylor frame made a comeback.

Subject: [access-uk] THANKS

This cross posting is so that I can say thanks to people on both lists
who either offered or provided the loan of Taylor frames.  All the
interest was greatly appreciated and the frame was put to good use in
last night's In Touch.  People might be interested to know that it
really did seem to provide the means by which blind people could tackle
Sudoku puzzles.  Sadly it is now obsolete.  I'll be returning the frames
to those people who sent me them in the next day or so.  

Thanks again.
