Jill, What is the cost for the magazine and how do we find out about receiving it?

Kim .Charlson who is the present BANA chairman had quite a lengthy article .concerning their meeting and in it states that the U.S. is taking no .position at this time. Similar information is also available on their web .site which is www.brailleauthority.org. Other countries are free to use the .revised UEBC but the U.S. will do nothing at the present time. You will .notice that the article you posted doesn't say that the U.S. has adopted the .code and will be using it at this time. .----- Original Message ----- .From: "Shelley L.
