Monica, et al. I would caution that Both of these lists are heavy traffic lists, at least by my standards.

Hi, Rick. I'm going to reply here since others may find the answer useful. I go to two different lists for questions like this. BlindTech is a list for general discussion of technology that blind people use. There are a lot of tech-savvy people there. It is a moderated list, so there isn't much flaming or off-topic chatter. To join, send a blank email to blindtech-subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The other list I use is more chatty, but it also seems to attract more computer geeks and creative people too. That's probably because that list isn't so firmly moderated. It's called BlindCoolTech, and you can subscribe by visiting the following website: http://lists.luv2bablyndi.net/listinfo.cgi/blindcooltech-luv2bablyndi.net I hope this will help you find answers to your questions as well as make some new friends. I'm looking forward to seeing you on one or both of the lists.
