Re: Footnote Call Was: New Java-based software speech synthesizeravailable



Wait a minute here, I'm going to highlight two parts of your message by 
deleting the material inbetween. Why? Because the two statements are not 
the same. Which is it?

Begging your pardon, but these are very different statements. I certainly 
don't know about the former, but there's a fair amount of material about 
the latter and it can easily be retrieved with a simple search on Google. 
The sources are places like the U.S. Department of Labor (where there's a 
major initiative about employment of pwds), DHSS, NIDRR, some Canadian 
agencies, etc.

Frankly, the numbers on LD are much higher than the numbers on people who 
are blind or even blind plus low vision.
