> increasingly available as DAISY, and are also available as 
> plain text, so braille knowledge isn't necessary to benefit from them.
> As I write their books nowadays, I am unofficially asking 
> what kinds of computer books you would like to see, and       
>    would buy. We are working on Office 2010 Reference cards

> Let me stress that this is my own information-gathering

> It is probably best that you reply to me individually about

> Thanks for thinking about it.
