Dear Colleagues,

Has anyone else had success with using Magic with SPSS? I have installed Magic and I get what is referred to as mouse painting. Any work arounds to this issue would be much appreciated.

This year we will have over thirty sessions will host a free concert,

design standards for professionals. Those traveling to Columbus for
Multiple Perspectives may want to consider coming a day early to attend
the May 3rd National Conference on Diversity, Race & Learning
ference/index.php> Sponsored by The Ohio State University's Office of
Diversity & Inclusion.

As you review the tentative program clusters of sessions that
have emerged from the pool of proposals. Access to Electronic &
Informaiton Technology - Intersections with Race & Gender -
Communications - The Built Environment - Art, Performance & Change.
These themes respond to the challenges we face and the challenge to
address them.

"We must build a world free of unnecessary barriers,
stereotypes, and discrimination.... policies must be developed,
attitudes must be shaped, and buildings and organizations must be
designed to ensure that everyone has a chance to get the education they
need and live independently as full citizens in their communities."
Barack Obama April 11, 2008

I look forward to seeing you there

The Accessible- Digital Rights Management Conference (A-DRM2)
(Preconference Event May 3, 2011)

In April 2010, publishers, standards organizations, disability
service offices, lawyers, bookstores, accessibility experts and
technologists met on The Ohio State University campus. We discussed
opportunities and obstacles related to creating "born digital" textbooks
that could be made available to students with print disabilities in a
timely manner. With generous support from the Rehabilitation Services
Commission and The Ohio Board of Regents, we have begun studying the
accessibility ecosystem (accessible learning materials in the student's
preferred learning environment) and promising formats to achieve the
goal of accessible, born digital learning materials. We will report on
our findings on May 3, 2011. Those interested in attending this one-day
pre-conference should contact Steve Acker (acker.1 at osu.edu). Attendees
will be asked to comment on a white paper that describes our findings
and help us extend recommendations into a wider array of student
learning environments.

The Right to Digital Access: Current Issues, Challenges, and
Presented by Daniel F Goldstein, Esq. Partner, Brown, Goldstein
& Levy, LLP
Hosted by the Columbus Advisory Committee on Disability Issues
Free and open to the public

A senior partner at Brown Goldstein Levy in Baltimore, Dan
serves as counsel for the National Federation of the Blind. He has
initiated a national legal campaign to ensure access to technology. His
settlement against Cardtronics, provides for tens of thousands of
voice-guided ATMs, constituted a major step toward making this
ubiquitous convenience accessible to the blind. His suit against
Target.com set precedent regarding the application of access laws to
websites, and his suit against America Online has made AOL accessible to
the blind. In litigation he has helped ensure the right of the blind to
vote independently and in secret. His involvement in Arizona State suit
and Justice Department complaints related to the use of e-readers;
current suit against the Law School Admissions Counsel for web access
and pending Department of Education Office for Civil Rights Penn State
University focused on web based services and instructional technologies
are setting the standard for electronic and Information technology
access in higher education. His work has gone beyond litigation to
partnerships, including negotiating joint technology agreements with
developers such as Amazon.com.
