American Council of the Blind Annual Convention, July 5-12, 2008
I'll be participating in a panel session at the American Council of the Blind Annual Convention, July 5-12 at the Galt House Hotel & Suites in Louisville, Kentucky. The American Council of the Blind is one of the nation's leading membership organizations of blind and visually impaired people. The panel session, Books Unbound: How Technology is Writing a New Chapter on Accessible Textbooks, will also include presenters from the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Center, Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic, Bookshare.org and the National Braille Press. During my segment, I'll be giving folks an overview of the latest news on math support in assistive technology products and how the provision of MathML within electronic textbook files is going to make fully accessible math textbooks a reality for people with visual impairments, with support for both math-to-speech and math-to-braille access. If you're going to be in Louisville for ACB, be sure to come to this session and say hello.
