I know this isn't a specifically disability program, but there are children with disabilities who participate, and literacy is a very important cause for me. Please take a look, and if you can spare a few dollars, please consider contributing.

At long last! I know you've been waiting for it! Part 3 of my interview with Dann Berkowitz. In this episode, we get down to some of the nitty gritty of what you need to consider when setting up your own conversion system, or deciding to outsource.

For some great resources, be sure to check out the AHEAD e-Text resource site at http://www.ahead.org/resources/e-text. Also, don't forget about the discount Dann is offering to the D411 audience. Details are in the sidebar to the right.

I do apologize for the long time between shows. I'm afraid it's going to continue to be erratic while I'm getting my doctorate, I'm afraid. Anyone who is interested in helping out, please email me (disability411@jinkle.com) and let's talk!

Mark Richert from the American Foundation for the Blind talks to me about the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2009. This is a very important bill for people with disabilities and I hope you will look into it and write your Representative if you support it.

Apparently, President Obama will announce this afternoon that the United States will sign the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Pretty sad that it took this long. Pretty embarrassing that countries with such wonderful civil rights history, like China, signed before us.

Ok, I've hinted at a really exciting trip I was taking to Washington, DC, but wasn't able to say a whole lot about it for various reasons. I still can't talk about some things because there is research coming out of it and I don't want to ruin it by letting the cat out of the bag early. But this much I can share -- an article on the White House blog about our visit! I'm in the picture, but you can't see me too well -- I'm on the far right.
