Hi Al,

That's whya document like Michael Feir's excellently written Personal Power book is a very good help to the blind. If every rehab center or state agency could hand that out to a totally new blind computer user it would go a long ways to solving a lot of problems in terms of exposing them to all the things available to them. Especially, to accessible games of which I am always eager to find new markets and customers. Instead it seams each new generation of blind computer users have to find these things out the hard way by searching for it.

Just a quick note here...
The Veterens administration gives computers to those blind veterens who can handle it. They only give jaws to the vets, and there is absolutely no mention of other screen readers. in fact, the VA trainers in the rehab hospitals for the blind have never once told me anything about all the great things the visually impaired has accomplished thru programs, games, email lists and the like. It would have been nice for those computer teachers to give out lots of links to the communities that are on the internet, it would have made my first few years a lot less stressful and difficult. AS a side note, the only game provided by the VA for the blind was a chess set, and bingo.
