Hello all,

I would like to update you on the new Access2Science web site that was
announced about a month ago.


The purpose of this site is to provide up-to-date practical information on
technologies and techniques permitting people with print disabilities to
access scientific information and education. It continues to be updated to
include more and more new topics of interest, including

. an article and links to accessibility tutorials on the statistics
application "R" by Prof. Jonathan Godfrey of Massey University , New Zealand

. Links to the Do-It site at the University of Washington and its
trove of information about accessibility of STEM

. Links to recent STEM-related articles and resource lists by the
Canadian National Educational Association of Disabled Students on studying
and pursuing a science career by students with disabilities

. Links on teaching chemistry to students with disabilities and
another article on accessible chemistry labs

. articles and links on braille math translators and languages

. articles and links on math languages Latex and MathML

. Accessible tables of essentially all Latex math symbols

. Accessible table of all MathML single unicode symbols

. articles on using MS Word and MathType to write scientific
articles, and convert them to braille or other accessible formats

. Tables giving German and Japanese translations of English
scientific vocabulary

Many other articles are in preparation, and the editors would be happy to
hear from anyone who would like to contribute articles that fall within the
scope of this web site. We will also appreciate suggestions for links to
other STEM-related accessibility resources.

John Gardner
