Hey Jennifer,

At this time, the accessible version of the Levelator is a private beta. 
Although we want to start recognizing The Conversations Network for its 
efforts, we do not have permission to open the floodgates at this time.  If 
you're producing audio programming, please feel free to e-mail me privately 
at editor@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and I may be able to send you a copy of the 
private beta.

Once the Conversations folks have released a public version, we will 
certainly be all over it to provide the deserved public exposure.  :-)

Subject: making the Levelator accessible -- what's the scoop

Hello, Blindcasters:

So, I saw a note on Dean's Top Tech Tidbits about making the
Levelator accessible, but I've not seen anything on this list which
seems a little odd to me.

I also checked Blind Access Journal, and I didn't see anything on
there.  Did I miss it?  If so, how a bout a link?

Unfortunately, I don't have time to listen to Main Menu all the time,
where I presume this may have been discussed, so can anyone fill this
group in on this project?

I should think it deserves wider exposure (such as maybe only being
demoed on MainMenu -- if it has been -- and perhaps down the road on
BCT), especially for Doug and the crew, rather than just in the
blindness community.  It might, for example, make a good story to
illustrate that thinking about access, from the get-go, is easier
than adding it in later.

I presume this is a Darrell (and perhaps Jeff) project, so thanks,
guys, for what you're doing.  But can we open this up  a bit, to have
a few more Beta testers if others besides me are interested, but
uninformed?  What about folks who use the Mac and Linux with
assistive technology?
