If you find that any of the information contained in this document is incorrect or if you know of other emailing lists of interest to the blind and visually impaired, their friends and family, and/or professionals in the blindness and vision loss field, please contact me, Gregory J. Rosmaita so that I can make the necessary corrections and/or additions to BLIST.

A Note to Listowners (May 25, 2002)

Due to a wide variety of connectivity and infrastructural problems, it has been very difficult for me to effectively monitor my email for the past several months. Therefore, if you have contacted me since the last comprehensive overhaul of BLIST on Febrauary 23, 2000, requesting:

  1. the addition of a list or corrections to a extant listing, and you haven't received a response from me; or,
  2. if you can't find your list's entry or your list's entry hasn't been updated with the information you provided,

please resend your BLIST information request to BOTH of the following eddresses:

<oedipus@hicom.net> AND <unagi69@concentric.net>

I apologize sincerely for any inconvenience, but the integrity of the information contained in BLIST, as well as my commitment to ensuring full informational equivalency between the hypertextualized and non-hypertextualized versions of BLIST, is my over-riding concern. Thanks to all who have continued to keep me abreast of the appearance of new lists and changes to established lists.

ACA-BLIND

In the Spring of 1999, The Disability Unit at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, started a mailing list named ACA-BLIND, for blind and visually impaired students and academics (especially those in Africa) who wish to talk about access to literature, adaptive technology, and other tertiary educational issues affecting blind people.

The impetus behind the ACA-BLIND emailing list is the need of blind and visually impaired students and academics to have access to a pool of specialised knowledge, experience, advice and exchange of ideas. This list, a first of its kind in South Africa, is not heavily moderated, but should serve as a springboard to varied academic access discussions, including (but not limited to) access to literature, adaptive technology, and the broader activities of academic institutions.

To subscribe to ACA-BLIND, type the command:

ACB-ANNOUNCE

ACB-Announce is a special announcement-only list, sponsored as a public service by the American Council of the Blind (ACB). The purpose of ACB-Announce is to provide timely information to members and friends of ACB. You will receive critical legislative updates, important legal information, and announcements about a wide variety of ACB activities and events.

ACB-Announce is a "one-way" list. Messages come from it to you. Should you inadvertently post a message to this list it will probably disappear. At best you may get a reply from the owner of this list, reminding you that ACB-Announce is an announcement-only list. Don't take this personally--it's just the way the list is configured.

To subscribe to ACB-Announce, type:

subscribe ACB-Announce <userid@domain> FirstName LastName

in the BODY of an emessage--substituting, of course, your actual eddress for "userid@domain" and your actual first and last names--and send it to:

To unsubscribe from ACB-Announce, type:

ACB-L

ACB-L is a List for general discussion on topics related to the American Council of the Blind (ACB) and almost anything else people care to raise about blindness. It is intended to be a free-wheeling forum with little structure except that of courtesy and respect for one another. It is a way for ACB members and friends to keep in touch at the grass roots level.

To subscribe to ACB-L, type:

subscribe ACB-L <userid@domain> FirstName LastName

in the BODY of an emessage--substituting, of course, your actual eddress for "userid@domain" and your actual first and last names--and send it to:

<majordomo@telepath.com>

To post a message to ACB-L, send it to:

<ACB-L@telepath.com>

Remember that any emessages sent to the list will be circulated to everyone else who is subscribed to ACB-L, so please think before you post!

And, as you participate in the discussion on ACB-L, please use the following techniques and ideas, which are designed to benefit you as well as all other participants on the list.

  1. Do not include messages in your replies on ACB-l that have been posted to the list previously. Including messages from others makes your message unnecessarily lengthy and creates problems for the Digest version of this list.
  2. When answering a message, try to avoid repeating what has already been said by others.
  3. Try to avoid replying to every message through the list on a topic that is of particular interest to you. Remember, you can write directly to the sender of a message without involving the entire list. Sometimes this can be helpful.
  4. When attaching files to your message, bear in mind that there will be mail programs and receiving methodologies that corrupt the attachment. This may cause people to contact you for a copy of your attachment as a separate file. Contacts of this nature should be andled off the list.
  5. Refrain from personal attacks when posting to the list. If you have something specific or of a personal nature to say to an individual, send them a note privately. Naturally, there are times when discussing ideas with which one doesn't agree leads to debate that can be construed as personal in nature. The use of common courtesy will avoid problems in most, if not all, cases.
  6. Please do not use aliases or names other than your own on this list. Everybody is welcome to subscribe and to participate. However, we maintain the right to know who you are and extend the same courtesy in return.
  7. There are two ways you can receive the postings to this list: one at a time; or as a digest containing a number of postings combined together. Subscribe to acb-digest if you wish to receive the digest version. Once accepted there unsubscribe to acb-l. Some people prefer the digest mode because your mailbox doesn't get filled up so fast.

To unsubscribe from ACB-L, type:

unsubscribe ACB-L

in the BODY of an emessage, and send it to:

<majordomo@telepath.com>

If something is troubling you about this list or you want to discuss list matters privately, feel free to contact the listowner of ACB-L at any time, using the following eddress:

ACCESS-L is an open form for the free and unmoderated discussion of access. This discussion can be either a technical one, as related to computers, or a more general discussion of any aspect of accessibility. It is not, however, limited and topics of general interest to the group are encouraged.

Although the original emphasis of ACCESS-L was the discussion of all aspects of computer access for the blind/VI, and many of the list's subscribers are persons with a "disability", all interested parties are more than welcome to participate.

Those who wish to advertize products are asked not to do it on the list. However product announcements are welcome as is the participation of interested vendors.

List members are asked to keep all conversation free of personal attacks, racial remarks, or attacks of a religious nature. There is already enough of that in this world. The intent is for everyone to enjoy themselves and not to feel alienated or singled out.

SUBSCRIBE ACCESS-L

in the BODY of an emessage, and send it to:

To unsubscribe from ACCESS-L, type the command:

BASR-L

BASR-L is a professional mailing list for the discussion of blind web access issues. The main focus of BASR-L is to improve the access blind people have to the World Wide Web. (It is not a list for support on existing products and features, since other lists, such as ACCESS-L, BLIND-L, GUISpeak, WEBWATCH-L, and Lynx-Learners, amongst others, already provide that service.)

BASR-L aims at promoting dialogue between blind individuals, web professionals, adaptive technology industry professionals, software developers, and other individuals interested in improving blind people's access to the web.

If you are a blind consumer interested in working with browser companies to develop an understanding of how blind people could use browsers most effectively, you are invited to join BASR-L. Certainly, no such effort can hope to succeed without your active participation.

If you are a professional associated with the development of web and browser technology, and would like to help blind people gain the best access possible to the web, you are invited to join BASR-L. You will learn how blind people use computers to access information they usually can't get any other way. Our effort will not succeed without the active participation of professionals from the industry that brings web browsers to market.

If you are an access technology developer or professional who is interested in developing approaches for World Wide Web access, you are invited to join BASR-L. This listserve would be an excellent forum for developing mutual strategies with browser developers. Your experience in providing blind people access to information technology will be invaluable to this group's efforts.

If you are a researcher in these or associated fields, and you are interested in testing the limits of non-visual web browsing, you are invited to join BASR-L. You will learn about the practical opportunities available in non-visual information technology today. And, we need your vision of a better tomorrow to insure the best browsing products possible.

Specially adapted computer interfaces based on synthetically generated speech (and on refreshable braille displays) have transformed the lives of many blind people over the past twenty years. BASR-L has been formed to provide a professional forum for developing the necessary ideas and contacts to insure that these gains in technology continue for blind people's quality of life and success in employment in the information age.

Some of the potential topics of discussion include:

  1. Is a combination of browser and screen reader the best approach to web access for blind people? If so, what aspects of information access are the browser's responsibility? Which are the screen reader's?

  2. What should be on a list of desirable browser features? What features should a browser provide for optimal access?

  3. What changes to HTML are needed?

  4. What new techniques have been discovered in relevant academic research?

  5. What are the best ways of insuring that blind people's access needs can and will be incorporated into new web technologies?

BlindAdult

The BlindAdult mailing list is for blind adults (i.e. those over 18 years of age). Almost any topic is welcome on BlindAdult, but the list's primary focus is on dating, relationships, and sex. BlindAdult was founded in 1998 by Jeff Knight, because he believes that:

"those of us who are blind have some unique concerns/perspectives related to these topics that are not always addressed on other lists. It is my hope that this list will provide a safe, fun, and friendly place for blind and visually impaired people to share their experiences, questions, and concerns about these often embarrassing topics."

BlinDate

BlinDate is a support list dedicated to the discussion of dating and relationships from a blind/vi perspective. The main thrust of the list is to provide blind and sighted people with a way to exchange feelings and techniques for dealing with the complications of dating and relationships and to vent their frustrations. The listowners, however, do not encourage political announcements or commercials, because doing so will divert the list from its orignal purpose. Please be VERY discrete when talking about anything pertaining to a sexual content--there is a list named BlindAdult for such topics of discussion. The focus of this list, BlinDate, is on feelings regarding dating and relationships.

BLIND-DEV

The purpose of BLIND-DEV is to serve as a catalyst which will both spur and speed the development of software which will enable the blind user to use emerging technologies, platforms, operating systems, and applications as they are developed, so that access is built-in, rather than retrofitted.

BLIND-DEV, therefore, is a conduit through which software developers and users--whatever their area of interest, level of expertise, operating system and/or hardware platform of choice--are able to dialogue, brainstorm, and educate one another. While BLIND-DEV is intended as a technologically oriented list, list "lurkers" are also welcome to monitor this dialogue.

BLIND-ISSUES

BLIND-ISSUES is an emailing list dedicated to the free and open discussion of what is happening in the social and political world of the blind and visually impaired.

According to Cathy Murtha, co-listowner of BLIND-ISSUES,

Many things affect the lives of the blind and visually impaired in everyday life. With this in mind, we thought a list which dealt with the major issues of the day would be a welcome addition to the lists specifically designed for the blind and visually impaired.
Topics which bog down and consume other email lists, such as blindness-related organizations and their goals, policies, conventions, and treatment of social issues; transportation issues specific to the blind; and discrimination shown by society toward the blind, are welcome on BLIND-ISSUES, as is the general anger and frustration which may be a part of every day life, and whatever else makes you a little hot under the collar.
We want BLIND-ISSUES to be a list for you to vent your frustrations or a place to find a sympathetic ear. If you are in the mood for a spirited debate, BLIND-ISSUES can accommodate!

The rules which govern BLIND-ISSUES are simple:

  1. The posting of private messages will never be permitted under any condition.
  2. No public flaming or chastising of others--take it to private email if you feel the need.
  3. No profanity. It is possible to discuss and present your points without the use of such vocabulary. You will find other people will listen to your viewpoint more if you refrain from this.
  4. No cross-posting to other lists unless you receive prior permission of the list owners.

The purpose of BLINUX-LIST is to serve as a catalyst which will both spur and speed the development of software which will enable the blind user to run his or her own Linux workstation his or herself.

One of the first steps in this direction is the compilation of HOWTO documentation files, in a wide variety of formats and languages, which will enable blind, visually impaired, deaf-blind, and low-vision users to install LINUX on their computers themselves. To find out more about this aspect of the BLINUX project, please read Michael de la Rue's position paper, a hypertext version of which can be found at:

<http://leb.net/blinux/accessdoc.html>

Well, if you are a software developer with spare time (is there such a creature?) who is interested in facilitating support for blind users of Linux, BLINUX-LIST is the place to exchange ideas, announce new software and trouble-shooting strategies, and get feedback from "the blind vine".

If you are a professional working in the field of blind computer use, BLINUX-LIST is the ideal source of new, interesting information and a means of sharing your experiences with others.

If you are a hacker who is blind, you may use BLINUX-LIST to get the newest blind support software for Linux.

JFW-Employment

JFW-Employment exists for the sole purpose of sharing information related to the use and configuration of the JAWS for Windows screen reader with customized workplace applications.

JFW-Employment is a "task oriented workgroup" which will cover the following questions:

  1. As a user of JFW on the job, what do you need? What could access technology specialists and others charged with the task of scripting customized applications do to make the process go more smoothely? How could it be more effective and efficient? What would you like to see in the way of documentation and instruction?
  2. As a power user of JFW, what do you need to become even more functional? What improvements to existing JFW documentation would you like to see? What would help you become more comfortable with the JFW scripting language, the JFW utility managers like the frame manager, window reclassification and other advanced JFW facilities? How could you put your skills as a JFW power user to use to help improve the effectiveness and efficiency of implementing JFW into the workplace for those who do not happen to be power users?
  3. As an access technology specialist or as an individual otherwise tasked with the implementation of JFW in a workplace situation, what do you need to be more effective and efficient? What techniques have you found to work well? What needs to be improved? What resources do you use to make this daunting task more achievable?

Since JFW-Employment is intended to be very task oriented, subscriptions are approved by the moderator. If you possess one of the following characteristics, your subscription request will be approved:

  1. You are a JFW user.
  2. You meet at least one of the following additional requirements:
    1. You are using JFW on the job
    2. You consider yourself to be a power user of JFW.
    3. You are an access technology specialist or you are otherwise tasked with the challenge of implementing JFW in the workplace.

JFWScripts

In the words of Dennis Brown, the listowner of the JFWScripts emailing list:

The JFWScripts list has been established in the hopes that the "Script Gurus", official or otherwise, will be willing to help us mere mortals in writing, editing, and developing new scripts for the JAWS for Windows screen reader. The JFW Script language is a powerful, flexible, and largely unsupported resource which endows the user with the ability to do damn near anything they like, given a little ingenuity and encouragement.
Anyone and everyone who uses JFW is encouraged to join the JFWScripts list--especially people from Henter-Joyce's script team, unofficial script gurus, and anyone else interested in getting the most out of this script language!
If you've got a question about the script language in general, or a certain script in particular; if you've tried creating a script, and it isn't doing what you thought it would do; if you can't get a script to compile; or if you'd just like to bounce an idea or two off other script writers, then the JFWScripts list is the place to do it!

Linux4Blind

Linux4Blind is a group of people interested in empowering individuals with disabilities throughout the world through free computer hardware, software, and training. We will begin our activities by focusing on assisting individuals who are blind by providing them with Linux-based machines and the necessary know-how to operate them productively.

Our objective is to empower individuals with disabilities who are also economically disadvantaged so that these may live more productive and rewarding lives. The choice of individuals who are blind as our first target group stems from the fact that this is the disability we understand best. The choice of Linux, as our first platform for free distribution, is due to the following reasons:

The idea for this project coalesced very recently (on December 3, 1999, to be specific), thus the narrow focus on all the blind population in the world!

The listowners of Linux4Blind are sure that others may have independently come up with a similar idea, and welcome all such like-minded individuals to work with us to make our common dream a reality. We welcome the help of each and every one of you in all areas of this endeavor.

If you would like to help with individual tasks or projects but will not be able to participate continuously in the group's activities, please consider subscribing to Linux4Blind's low-traffic sister list Linux4Blind_News, to be informed of major events and/or projects.

To subscribe to Linux4Blind, type the command:

Linux4Blind is an open list, which means that you do not have to be subscribed to the list in order to post to the list.

Lynx-Learners

Lynx-Learners is a peer-support list for users of Lynx, an extremely speech-friendly, text-based web browser popular amongst blind users.

LYNX-LEARNERS provides a supportive environment through which new users of Lynx can ask questions of, and learn from, more experienced users. LYNX-LEARNERS also functions as a forum for brainstorming, as well as for the development and sharing of browsing strategies, shortcuts, and tricks.

Although LYNX-LEARNERS is not intended to function as an exclusively blindness-specific list, most of its members are visually handicapped, and hence it is an ideal source of assistance, advice, support, and encouragement for the blind or visually-handicapped user.

In the words of the listowner, Jeff D. Doran:

The goals of this list, lynx-learners, include and are barely limited to the monstrous task of helping each other fully learn Lynx. We certainly cover related topics as needed: Internet, World Wide Web, hypertext, HTML (the HyperText Mark-up Language), Usenet news groups, ftp, gopher, telnet, email, 'net security, text editors, Unix, speech synthesizers (the hardware that converts text into electronic speech), SOSAS (speech output screen access software, the program that sends text from the terminal screen to the speech synthesizer), subtopics within those major topics and whatever experiment or Internet source or example we happen to deal with at any given moment. Is that all clear? Excellent, I'm dazed, too! <smile> I enjoy watching beginners on the Web, including myself, fully describe the basics of learning to crawl on the Web and grow into Web junkies and gurus (junkie I am, guru I intend to be...). I put bits and pieces of our learning on my Web pages so that others can follow our progress at their leisure (and we have something to refer back to).
... I would like us all to keep track of who has questions that the list is still working on answering. In other words, I would like to be sure that all questions at the level of the list as a whole (beginners' and intermediate questions at this time) are answered quite thoroughly. It's a conversation involving many people at many levels of experience in many things. I want us all to be sure that beginners and intermediate Lynx users are quite clear about the wonderful uses of Lynx and the Web. Naturally, we, beginners and advanced users, might say things that are confusing at first, but the idea is to be certain that the confusion gets resolved over time. I'm not worried about how much time. As far as I'm concerned, the list could develop overnight (so to speak) or take years. I'm intensely eager to be sure that everybody in the world has Web access, but I have learned that my intensity far overbalances most of the world's desires to follow my particular paths. So let's take as much time as we each need to be certain that all beginners on the list understand what this crazy stuff is all about.

NABS-L (ACB)

NABS-L, the National Alliance of Blind Students' Symposium, is an open-forum discussion list designed to facilitate dialogue among blind/visually-impaired students regarding relevant issues and topics of interest. Examples of topics appropriate for this list include, but are not limited to: educational equity and equality for the blind, employment issues and opportunities, the use of computers and other assistive technology, accessibility issues, discrimination, advocacy, working with readers, dealing with campus offices of Disabled Student Services, breaking down prejudice and stereotypes of blindness, maintaining and fostering independence, and exchanging ideas and personal experience stories of blindness. It is hoped that this list will enable blind students to make the most of their college experiences, and will encourage their full and equal participation in society.

This list will also serve as a forum for disseminating and discussing issues specifically related to NABS, the National Alliance of Blind Students, which is an affiliate of the The American Council of the Blind (ACB). However, all blind students are encouraged to join; list participants need not be members of NABS or ACB.

While NABS-L is primarily intended for blind and visually-impaired students, other interested persons may also take part, provided these individuals are committed to independence and equality for the blind, and provided this list does not lose its student-oriented focus.

NFB-BPJ

NFB-BPJ is the first discussion list for blind journalists. It is an informal gathering place for people who want to ask questions and exchange ideas on how blind people succeed in journalism. Working journalists or those who expect to write on deadline for a living are welcome. The group will include writers employed at newspapers, magazines, TV, or public affiars departments.

Students who wish to pursue a career in journalism and former journalists, who have become blind, and who wish to acquire effective alternative techniques for working in the highly-competitive arena of journalism, are also welcome. There will probably be little of interest on this list for poets or novelists.

NFB-BPJ is an outgrowth of The Blind Professional Journalists Group, which was formed in July 1996, in Anaheim, California, during the National Federation of the Blind's annual convention. Among its founding members are students, reporters, editors and the former dean of the journalism department at Arizona State University.

The expected topics of discussion include, but are not limited to:

NFB-BPJ may expand to include discussions far more diverse than these, but in order for the list to fulfill its purpose, it is important that subject matter be confined to those issues directly relating to journalism by the blind and to the techniques utilized by blind journalists.

PROGRAM-L

PROGRAM-L is a highly specialized emailing list, intended to serve as a conduit through which blind and visually impaired programmers can exchange ideas, strategies, and advice. The purpose of PROGRAM-L is:

  1. to discuss the visual aspects of application design which may be a cause of concern to a developer with no useful vision. Examples of such concerns include: ergonomic yet aesthetically-pleasing screen layout, optimal control size, etc.

  2. to provide sound coding tips which would make life easier for a blind person, such as setting the focus to the first logical control on a form so that a screenreader will read its label (provided it has been properly positioned).

  3. to discuss and suggest effective and productive practices for the development life-cycle

  4. to provide hints and tips on how best to access the visual IDE with speech or Braille. (Example: in VB4, to go from one control on a form to another, bring up the properties of any control with F4, go to the top of the property listbox and single click on the graphic to the right of the listbox heading which will bring up a combo box from which you can make your selection.

PROGRAM-L will be totally unmoderated unless it degenerates into vitriol and anarchy! You are, however, implored to become familiar with your mail reader so that:

  1. when appropriate (e.g. "I agree" comments), you can reply privately rather than to the list as a whole;
  2. you do not quote unnecessary and unwanted text from previous messages;
  3. you make your subject header relevant to what you are talking about.
  4. The format should be language/version followed by topic. For example, "VB4: USING THE DEBUG WINDOW"; and
  5. you must leave your personal screenreader agenda behind you!

It should be obvious why the subject header format is important but just to spell it out, it will aid sorting and the reliable use of the delete key.

Whilst it is expected that the majority of people will be using either VB, VC++, VJ++ or Delphi, the list is not restricted to only these although any additional ones should have a strong visual content; ie it is not the purpose of the list to be interested in DOS-based environments.

Although some of these rules may seem a little authoritarian, the aim is to keep the list in focus and usable, with the help, courtesy and foresight of its subscribers. So, if you have an interest in or are actively involved in GUI application development, please join and see what happens; even if you don't find it of use to yourself, you may be able to help someone else who is struggling keep a job.

VICUG-L: the Visually Impaired Computer Users' Group List

VICUG-L serves as a conduit through which members of visually impaired/blind computer users' groups nation- and world-wide can exchange educational materials, keep one another apprised of their activities, and discuss strategies for co-ordinated action.

VICUG-L was created to serve as a national discussion/announcement list for VICUGs located in the United States. However, the benefits of a global list which connects, and even fosters the establishment and growth of local VICUGs caused the listowners to broaden the list's mandate.

Since VICUG-L is a dialogue, rather than a discussion or a chat list, potential subscribers are asked to review the following ground rules carefully before subscribing.

  1. VICUG-L is an organizational and informational list, which is intended to foster constructive dialogue and increase networking amongst computer user groups.

  2. On no account should any list member post to the list regarding the appropriateness of messages sent to VICUG-L by others. Such correspondence should be addressed directly to the original poster, and Cced to the listowners. Any and all complaints regarding the appropriateness of another member's posts to VICUG-L should be addressed to the listowners using the following eddress:

        <VICUG-L-REQUEST@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU>

    Flamers will be dropped from the list without warning. Egregious and repeated violators of list policy may be placed on "Review", which means that their posts to VICUG-L will be subject to approval by the listowners before they are distributed to the list.

  3. SUBJECT LINES: Subject: lines should be brief and precise. Because VICUG-L is a multi-purpose list, it is essential that the Subject: line accurately reflect the contents of the message's body, if the list is to function effectively. Please exercise care in this regard when responding to messages.

  4. SUBJECT LINE PREFIXES: Messages specifically intended for the members of a specific computer users' group should contain a Subject: line prefix so as to provide listmembers with an effective filtering mechanism. A list of the current prefixes will be mailed to you upon confirmation of your subscription.

    1. The following Subject: lines should also be used to indicate the content of posts:
      • ACT: activism updates; calls for action (i.e. emailing campaigns)
      • EDU: educational materials
      • PROP: proposals for co-ordinated action
      • TECH: emerging technology and its implications
      • WEB: web-related resources and/or information
      • NET: internet-related resources and/or information

  5. QUOTING: Please avoid overquoting previous posts--often, a brief summation of a previous post or the thread to which you are contributing is sufficient. Those who object to another listmember's overquoting should send their complaints directly to the poster, and Cc them to the listowners at
    <VICUG-L-REQUEST@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU>

  6. NETIQUITTE: Complaints about and criticism of other listmembers and/or the organizations to which they belong should be handled off-list via private email.

  7. MEETING MINUTES: Conference announcements and minutes of meetings should only be sent to the list by an authorized representative of the body whose activity they document.

SUBSCRIBE VICUG-L firstname lastname

WEBWATCH-L

The World Wide Web (WWW) is perhaps the most fascinating and challenging part of the internet. It represents the first widespread use of electronic publishing as a distribution method which is a great benefit for users of access technology.

The general purpose of WEBWATCH-L is to discuss the web and how users of access technology can tap the information on the web. Topics for discussion include, but are not limited to:

  1. New web sites of interest to users of access technology either because they make information available that was previously only available in print or because they are of a general interest to the access technology field.

  2. Web sites that either are or are not particularly friendly to users of access technology, such as screen readers.

  3. Techniques for making a particular web browser work better with different access technology.

  4. Coordination of advocacy efforts to make web sites more accessible.

Words from Washington

Words from Washington (WFW) is an electronic legislative briefing service from the Governmental Relations Group of the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB). WFW is available free of charge via email. WFWis a brief report on what's happening in Washington with frequent analysis of how developments in Washington affect individuals who are blind or visually impaired and the professionals who serve them. It is issued periodically while Congress is in session. WFW is generally no more than two or three pages in length and is presented in a a 73 column, plain text format easily read by all screen readers.

In addition, from time to time, subscribers to WFW may also receive alerts and updates on current federal legislation and other governmental developments of interest to individuals who are blind and the organizations who serve them. Alerts will briefly outline the problem, tell you what advocates are doing about it and suggest ways in which you can be involved. Some of the issue areas we will cover are appropriations and budget, civil rights, education, employment and rehabilitation, health care, Social Security, technology, telecommunications, and transportation. The subject and timing will be based on current activities in Congress or Executive Branch agencies.

WFW is not a complete Congressional Record or Federal Register tracking service, and is not intended as a vehicle to provide in-depth articles regarding legislative or regulatory matters affecting the blindness community. You are encouraged to reprint or redistribute WFW and alerts, as long as AFB is credited as the source of any information used. Keep in mind that legislative activity is fast paced, and information published today may be out of date tomorrow.

linux-access

LINUX-ACCESS is a new Linux related mailing list that has been created to service the needs of users and developers of the Linux OS and software who are either disabled or want to help make Linux more accessible.

There are many people with disabilities who use the Linux operating system, it is important to facilitate their needs as new products and/or distributions are developed. LINUX-ACCESS, therefore, was created specifically to enable developers and users of Linux to exchange ideas and develop strategies and solutions in areas relating to accessibility.

The purpose of LINUX-ACCESS, therefore, is to enable individuals to assume an active role in the development of Linux and of software for Linux, as well as other Unix OSes, so that accessibility is considered in the creation stage, and not as a retrofitted add-on. LINUX-ACCESS also aims to improve access in general for these operating systems.

Even if you are not well versed in the technical aspects of software development, you are strongly encouraged to participate in discussions on LINUX-ACCESS, so that those who are developing software can benefit from your concerns, needs, desires, and suggestions for making their products and/or projects more accessible.

Although LINUX-ACCESS will deal specifically with the Linux operating system and related software, many issues and software are platform independent so discussion will not be restricted to Linux alone but may include other Unix type OSes as well.

Please note that the main focus of LINUX-ACCESS is the development and enhancement of access-related technology, not advocacy. Therefore, while input from all parties is not only welcomed, but encouraged, LINUX-ACCESS is not intended to be another "chat list", but, rather, a means of actively seeking and working out solutions to access related issues.

You can use the following form to subscribe to LINUX-ACCESS, or you can subscribe manaully via email. To use the following form, simply type your name and email address in the text-entry fields which follow this paragraph and then (depending on your browser) either click on the "Submit" button or use your browser's search feature (the forward slash in LYNX) move to the "Submit" button and press enter.

POD-L was launched in early March, 1997, and hence is only in the first stage of its evolution. At the outset a different theme will be discussed each week, and members can contribute poems that support the theme. This is not a rigid formula, but only a means of getting organised and underway.

There is also the possibility that poems contributed to the list and in the public domain can be used in the making of a braille anthology to be available to those who may be interested. This, of course, would be some way down the road.

All lovers of poetry are welcome, so please spread the news.

Obtaining the Plain Text Version of This List via Email

The plain text version of this hypertext document is available via email in two formats: as an ASCII text file or as a attached zipfile.

To obtain a plain text version of BLIST via email, type the line

GET BLIST INFO

in the body of an emessage, and send it to

LISTSERV@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU

Please note that the plain text version of BLIST is a very long file, so if your ISP has imposed a size limit on incoming emessages, you may receive a blank emessage, a truncated emessage, an error message, or no response at all. You may, therefore, want to retrieve an index of the lists contained in BLIST, rather than the entire list. To receive a list of the lists contained in the latest revision of BLIST type the line

GET BLIST SHORT

in the BODY of an emessage, and send it to:

LISTSERV@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU

Keep in mind, however, that you can always retrieve the zipfile, blist.zip, which contains the plain text version of BLIST via anonymous ftp from the /pub/poehlman directory at ftp://ftp.clark.net or via telnet, from the "Blindness-Related Information" file library of NFBnet.org

Thanks to Roger Myer for making this service available.

Global List of Public LISTSERVs

There are two ways to obtain a list containing the eddresses of all the public LISTSERV-administered emailing lists. The easiest is through the web, using CataList, which is located at:

http://www.lsoft.com/lists/listref.html

You can use the following form to search CataList, the database from which the GLOBAL LIST of Public Listservs is generated. Beneath the text entry field you will find three checkboxes:

  1. list name
  2. host name
  3. list title

Remember that these are checkboxes, so you can activate more than one at a time. Note that the default settings are "list name" and "list title". You can search for multiple topics by separating your search strings with a comma. For example, the search term "blind,vision" (without the quotes, of course) will return all of the database entries containing the word "blind" OR the word "vision". To search for a topic that actually contains a comma, type two commas in a row.

Search In: 1.
2.
3.

The global list is also available via email, but since there are currently over 15 thousand public LISTSERV lists in existence, a full listing would result in a file over 30,500 lines long--an estimated 1MB of data--which means that it is quite often not possible to obtain a single emessage containing a complete listing of all the public LISTSERV-administered lists in the world.

Thus, if you do not have web access or prefer to receive this information via email, it is necessary that you tailor your query by using a search string. For example, if you wanted to query the Global List of Public LISTSERVs for all of the LISTSERV-administered lists pertaining to blindness, you would send the following command:

LIST GLOBAL BLIND

to the following eddress:

<LISTSERV@SEARN.SUNET.SE>

Multiple requests, such as:

LIST GLOBAL BLIND
LIST GLOBAL DISABIL

are also valid.

When composing a query it is important to remember that:

  1. only part of a word is necessary to execute a search. The term 'BLIND', for example, will return lists centered on blindness as well as those which exist to discuss venetian blinds and the band Blind Melon.

  2. Search terms must be at least three characters long.

  3. The software which executes the search does not recognize wildcards. If you attempt to execute a search using a wildcard, such as an asterisk, you will receive an error message.

Keep in mind that--depending on the search terms you submit--your query may result in an enormous emessage. If your ISP has imposed a size limit on incoming emessages, you may receive either a blank emessage, a truncated emessage, or no emessage at all, and you will have to resubmit a query using a more specific search term.

Acknowledgements

This hypertext index was originally inspired by the list of Blindness-Related Mailing Lists compiled by Roger Myers, but has grown gargantuan due in no small part to the invaluable contributions of individual blind cybernauts from every corner of the globe. Additional information was provided by Phil Scovell and Jeff Shaffer's indispensible InterNet Phonebook of Blind Users and Services. Special thanks are also due to Mark Senk, and especially, Dave Poehlman, not only for the use of his FTP directory, in which a zipped version of this file is stored, but for all of his advice and assistance. Thanks, too, to Dan Kysor and (the late lamented) GBX.ORG, for permission to store the zipped version of this file in their file library and for having made the plain text version available via email for several years. Kathleen Krause has also provided me with innumerable leads, without which this list would be far less comprehensive. Thanks are also due to Norman L. DeForest, who provided me with the list of blindness-specific newsgroups. And, if not for the acute ear of Kelly Ford, this document would be riddled with orthographic errors and irregularities--any which remain are my exclusive responsibility. Special thanks also to both Miss Uni Ko and Wee Todd. Finally, multifarious thanks are due Travis Marshall, for his tireless efforts, and to Helen Shapiro, for the eels.

Additional contributors to BLIST include (with profoundest apologies for any omissions): Fernando Botelho, Christine Szostak.
