Need to talk with a few emacspeak users
I am looking for a few email addresses of people who are using Emacspeak, preferably
people who are not scientists or programmers.
I have been talking with Franklin Shiner (email@example.com) who is blind
and is very computer-literate. Franklin is not convinced that Emacspeak is an
appropriate technology for the average blind person who is not technically oriented
but who needs to use a computer at work. He would like to correspond with other
people who are using Emacspeak, preferably non-technical people.
My role in this is as follows:
I read the Scientific American "Profile" about TV Raman and got interested in trying
out the Emacspeak program. I am working on setting up an Emacspeak demo for Vermont
Center for Independent Living (VCIL) in Montpelier, VT. So far, I have acquired a
486 computer (donated by my employer) and have installed Linux and Emacs. I have
gotten it to connect with my internet account and I have email working. I am in the
process of learning Emacs and will shortly be installing Emacspeak and W3. VCIL has
a DECTALK Express that we can use to try it out.
