In Line is not the right choice. Choose "square" then choose your alignment - left, right, center.

>From what I can tell, floating images and textboxes are not accessible in Word.

We have some individuals who want to be able to wrap text around an image. However, making the image in line with the text does not seem to permit wrapping. The only way I've been able to think of to do this is to make columns surrounding the image and a block of text that would fit alongside. It seems to work somewhat but is kinda clunky.

Do you have any other techniques you use to wrap text around an image and image caption in Word?

Subject: [Athen] GoReact


I was eventually included in an email exchange about GoReact. The basic question I was asked was, "are you familiar with it?" As I understand it, instructional staff have access to it free but there is a $20 charge (per class) for students

Is anyone using GoReact? Thoughts? Accessibility issues come to mind for me. The email (with the link to the demo) that started it all is below.

I will be evaluating GoReact, an interactive online video tool that allows for precise feedback right where you observe a good or not so good recorded behavior/response. They promote this program for ASL & Interpreter Training, Foreign Languages, Communication & Public Speaking, and corporate training, but they also indicate this can be used in other areas.

A representative has been invited to do a GoToMeeting demonstration to American Sign Language instructors on Friday

I also scheduled a meeting for Public Speaking, Foreign Languages and other disciplines on Friday, August 26 Here is the link for your review: www.GoReact.com<http://www.GoReact.com>

Please let me know what you think, and if you see any potential
