fyi everyone, the next time it's important for you to attend a meeting
or a class, either for your work or your school, consider asking them to
purchase one of these "hotspot appliances" for you.
If you have a wifi notetaker or laptop or netbook, the hotspot appliance
broadcasts the contents of the screen or the projector in a way that
your web browser can read it to you.  It also makes a recording of the
presentation in a way that you can access it later if someone will put
the recording up on a web site (or perhaps just give you a copy, I'm not
sure about that though).
Really, what would be best would be if blind services or the Lighthouse
bought one of these, and arranged for it to be loaned out to the
community as needed, since it may be hard to convince an employer to
purchase one of these for ocasional meetings.

        Serotek today unveiled its newest product, the AE HotSpot, at
the 2010 ATIA conference in Orlando, FL. This revolutionary appliance,
based on the same technology as Serotek's Web-based Accessible Event
service, gives people with disabilities access to classroom
presentations, seminars, and other events. For the first time, people
who have hearing or visual impairments can take full advantage of all
aspects of any online or on-site event/presentation.

        By leveraging our Accessible Event platform and secure wireless
networking technology, Serotek's AE HotSpot appliance allows event
participants with disabilities to access slides, Excel spreadsheets, Web
pages, and Word documents using their own wireless-enabled computers and
access technology in real time. With the AE HotSpot, an event can be
accessed from the Internet if the event coordinator wishes, but an
Internet connection is not necessary for on-site participants to have
full access to the event. That's because the AE HotSpot appliance is a
completely independent WiFi access point. This allows the event
coordinator and/or presenter to decide what content will and will not be
available to the attendees. The self-contained nature of this appliance
enables a closed, secure Intranet environment, regardless of whether
Internet connectivity is available. However, where Internet connectivity
is available, the event coordinator can configure the AE HotSpot app
liance to provide wireless Internet access as well as access to the
event. The AE HotSpot can also record all event content and publish it
on a web site or intranet with no need to install additional software on
the target server. This enables anyone to deploy an accessible recording
of an event, even if they don't subscribe to the Web-based Accessible
Event service.

        Serotek will release the AE HotSpot soon. Learn more about the
AE HotSpot by watching this accessible presentation.
