I don't know of any way to view the notes as you're presenting. You
need to print out the notes pages to use as you present.

Subject: [Athen] quick question about PowerPoint

I've tried looking at the MS site and online, and am not having much
luck - I hope someone here can answer my question:

If you make notes in a PowerPoint presentation (using the Notes pane),
can you/how do you view those notes if you are using PowerPoint viewer?

This is ppt 2003 (although if it isn't possible in 2003 but is in 2007
I'd be interested in knowing).

Is anyone familiar with Enhanced Vision's Merlin or Humanware's
Smartview Extend? We are trying to decide which CCTV would be the
better choice? Also any feedback on Clarity's line ie Flexmate, PCMate?

Subject: RE: What Brand/Model CCTV's Do You Use?

I really, really like the Ergo. The maker (Rehan) is a European company,
but the CCTVs are carried by Abledata:

I love the easy motion of the tray and the fact that the CCTV is
adjustable on its cart. The cart itself is easy to roll, and you can get
oversize wheels so that it moves easily across things like asphalt and

It is the only CCTV that I have ever had users tell me that they
actually enjoyed using. Folks love the smooth tray movement, and I even
had one person say that it was the first CCTV she had used that did not
make her neck hurt.

It's a bit large for a home situation, but it's great for a campus.

Hope this helps!

Subject: What Brand/Model CCTV's Do You Use?

Greetings All,

Sorry for the cross-posting...

We're in the market for a CCTV, and I've never purchased one
before. Anything in particular I should be looking at? What are the
best brands/models as far as durability, functionality, etc.? Is
there a particular brand/model that the California Community Colleges
recommend? Are there some that are better than others? What about
service? Which companies provide the best service?

From the research I've done so far, they all seem to have similar
feature sets and functionality. The CCTV will be in the Library
where students and community members will have access to it. My hope
is that I can get a product that has a rich feature set while being
easy and intuitive to use.

Thanks for your help!

Third Annual World Usability Day New England
Universal Usability in Teaching and Learning
Dartmouth College
Hanover, New Hampshire, USA
November 8, 2007
9:00am - 4:00pm

The Usability Professionals Organization is organizing World
Usability Day on November 8, 2007 to promote ease of use in design.
Events will be held in over 175 cities around the world with the goal
of increasing awareness about the importance of usability and user-
centered design.

For the third consecutive year, Dartmouth College and Landmark
College are jointly organizing World Usability Day New England. Our
theme is ?universal usability to enhance learning, effectiveness, and
understanding across people of all abilities.? This year?s conference
will offer two tracks, one on Teaching & Learning and the other on
Web Usability. Both tracks will explore ways in which a universal
usability methodology can be used to design classrooms, curricula,
instructional technology, library services and resources, and web
sites that are usable by all.

This year we are fortunate to have Ben Shneiderman join us as
keynote. Ben was instrumental in establishing the field of Human-
Computer Interaction (HCI). In recent years, he has been promoting
HCI for the universal user through efforts such as his award-winning
book, Leonardo?s Laptop: Human Needs and the New Computing
Technologies, the Conference on Universal Usability, and the
Conference on Creativity and Cognition. We are delighted to have Ben
set the stage for our daylong discussions about designing for people.

We are currently soliciting proposals for presentations, posters,
demonstrations, and discussions that relate directly to universal
usability as applied to teaching, learning, and web development.
Proposals should be from 1?2 pages in length, and include the
following information:

Contact information:
-Email address

Session information:
-Type (30-minute presentation/demonstration or poster session) -Track
(Teaching & Learning or Web Usability) -Description

We know that the best learning takes place when we are active
participants. Thus, we are particularly interested in proposals that
describe methods of engaging conference attendees in the session.

Please send your submissions to wud2007 at dartmouth.edu by June 22, 2007.

Those interested in attending, stay tuned and hold the date! More
information will be forthcoming.
