Thanks for the Heads up there Robert! Seems like it's free while running in beta mode...I'll sign up.

Grabbed this information from the site: http://www.accesstext.org/providers.php

Five Easy Steps to Membership
Step One: Institution Membership Registration Form New members must complete and submit the AccessText Membership Registration Form. The Membership Registration Form must be submitted and approved by AccessText staff prior to receiving services.

Step Two: Membership Orientation Once the AccessText membership unit has verified and approved the Membership Registration Form, a phone or on-line appointment will be set up for the membership orientation. This 45-minute orientation requires that the disability service provider have access to the internet.

Step Three: Request Log-in Access to the Web-Based Application During the orientation, the disability service provider will be instructed to request access to the ordering and tracking application located on the AccessText website.

Steps Four: Mailing List If you have not signed up yet for the AccessText mailing list, please join by entering your email address in the box provided on the AccessText website.

Step Five: Membership Fee

The AccessText Network is currently offered to post-secondary institutions as a free beta service. Members will not be charged for access to the network until the beta period is complete (estimated to occur in fall 2009). To find out more about potential membership fees, navigate to the membership fees section.

Subject: [Athen] Looking for more info

Hi all,

have any of you heard of a program called "Access Text Network?" I'm wanting to get a bit more detail. My supervisor seems to be willing to let me join (not sure about a cost), but I'd like to have a bit more info if possible.

Apparently, it is a joint project with AAP and the Alternative Media Access Center (University of Georgia). What does anybody know about it?
