Hi Shelly,
    Yes my friends on the floor here are always mistified as to how I can
understand it. I'm living on a technology floor this year though, so they
can at least understand frustration when the screen reader tells me one
thing, but truly the computer was doing something else.

My roomate and best friend now for four years is fully sighted and
understands half of what JFW says I think...whereas my parents still have no
idea after all these years.

Jake
