I presented at AHG on the (un)accessibility of the Kindle. My presentation should be up shortly on the AHG website, but if anyone wants a copy of my PPT, I’d be happy to email it to you.

Thanks, Dann, Ken, and others.

Dann, your PP presentation is quite timely...both for this discussion and in the world of Kindles. Thank you for sharing it!

Someone at a meeting I was in yesterday said that they feel like they are in an episode of "I Love Lucy" trying to catch the pies before they go off the end of the conveyor belt. Our work feels that way sometimes, doesn't it? Trying to get good information out there before things go viral on us...

Interesting you should use the wording "professors may think electronic equals accessible". Here is my presentation from the 2008 Accessing Higher Ground conference discussing that very topic:


Hope this helps --- Dann

Hi Melanie,

I've not seen this, but electronic = access is definitely a misunderstanding that I've been combating for some time now with faculty. Would definitely be interested in hearing about this process and accessibility issues!

Has anyone seen books produced using this process? I wrote to them and asked about accessibility. It concerns me because professors may think electronic equals accessible.
