1) This article is called 100 Excellent Hints and Tips for every Computer User:

2) Thanks to the December 16, 2011 post to the NFB - Access Technology Blog, we 
learn about Mobile PC Monitor, a mobile phone app that allows users to control 
and monitor many facets of the operation of their PC. A big practical ability 
is the ability to kill processes, such as frozen JAWS processes, so that a 
reboot isn't necessary.

3) The December 13 post to the same blog discusses the new Brailliant braille 
display and takes HumanWare to task for inaccurately suggesting that the 
display presently works with IOS devices, which it now does not.

4) To high acclaim, GW Micro has released GW Skype, a standalone alternative 
application for the Skype internet telephony program. It works with any windows 
screen reader and replaces the standard Skype program. It is much more 
accessible than the standard skype program and it is intended that it will 
remain so, no matter what changes are made to the regular Skype interface.

5) De Witt & Associates will begin creating training books for window-Eyes, 
which can be purchased through Gw Micro. $99 Books on using window-eyes with 
word 2007 and Word 2010 are now available.

6) The creator of the JAWS discussion mailing list has launched a generalized 
technical support mailing list for use with issues not particular to JFW or its 
interactions with other programs.

7) The DAISY Consortium Announces the Latest Release of the Save as DAISY for 
Office 2010 Add-in. This lets users convert Word 2003, 2007 and 2010 documents 
to DAISY, and optionally add synthesized audio to the file.
