For those of you interested in making provisions for patrons with vision problems, this is really slick. The University of Washington has developed a web-based screen reading program that works from any internet connected computer, without needing to install any software or obtain permissions. And it’s free, which is just the right price for all of us. It's worth promoting to patrons who need this type of assistance. It's in alpha release, so it will undoubtedly be tweaked, but it's worth testing.
