Simon,

I hope that this news will be encouraging for you  and other low vision cconference attendees. If you could send this news out to the Assembly list that would be great. I thought I had Adam Sepaniak (sic) 's Email but apparently not here at home. I'm fine if you wish to include the Email trail below too. Thanks.
