I presented at AHG on the (un)accessibility of the Kindle. My

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...

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

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! Heidi On Sat, Nov 14, 2009 at 8:28 AM,

produced using this process? I wrote to them and asked about
accessibility. It concerns me because professors may think electronic
