Hi Al,

Some of my students have found a number of the apps on your list helpful.

You may also want to mention the Thunder screenreader, the WebbIE text-only
browser, and the Firevox plugin for the Firefox browser.

I'm not going to be able to attend the MI-AHEAD mini-conference on Friday,
but if this is when you are presenting, I'd sure like a copy of your

Hi everyone,

I'll soon be giving a presentation regarding Assistive Technologies for
the computer that are freely available. So far, I intend to touch on
the technologies listed below; However, I would welcome any additions,
or pointers to lists of such technologies already compiled on the net.
So far, I intend to cover:
1. System Access to Go
2. NVDA or nonvisual Desktop Access
3. ReadPlease text reading software.
4. The AMIS Daisy Reader
5. Orca, a screen reader for the Gnome Desktop Environment.
6. VoiceOver screen reader for the Mac

What am I missing?
