A few years back, you did an ASG presentation about Microsoft Office tools for the visually impaired. Would you post that information on the blog?

Thank you, Doris

It looks like Newsbank has a new feature for News Magazines. You can browse issues (but not the most current?).

Hi Kevin,

I'd be interested in hearing what you and other staff members think about "Network Neutrality".

From SaveTheInternet.com:

"Network Neutrality — or "Net Neutrality" for short — is the guiding principle that preserves the free and open Internet.

Net Neutrality ensures that all users can access the content or run the applications and devices of their choice. With Net Neutrality, the network's only job is to move data — not choose which data to privilege with higher quality service. Net Neutrality prevents the [Big Telecom]companies that control the wires from discriminating against content based on its source or ownership."

Hi Kevin,
This morning We had a customer attempt to print from a ,PDF
and the message said to access the default printer via the control panel.
As you know we cannot access the control panel on the public computers. Is there some way to enable customers to print from these files?
I know many of these are applications/forms that cannot be copied and pasted into word as well.

Kevin, many of our customers want to download music to their portable devices. We can't figure out how to do it. It seems like there should be an easy/free way. (This is from free legal music sites. Moving files from a CD to their device is another story, but if that's possible, tell us how to do that, too. Thanks, Pamela at Raleigh
