Mailing Lists

The Missouri Council of the Blind provides e-mail-based discussion groups, or mailing lists, for its members. Mailing lists provide a forum to discuss blindness issues; share resources, experiences, and ideas; ask questions of accessibility experts; and keep up-to-date on blindness issues. As a subscriber, you may send mail to the mailing list, which then broadcasts that message to all of the other list participants (subscribers).

This list has been created to provide news of the adaptive technology world. Whether it be new hardware or software that has been made available to the visually impaired, or tips and tricks on how to make these products work for them. You will also be able to talk about mainstream applications and how to use those products with adaptive technology. Although this list has mainly been created for the ATI members, it is open to the public and anyone is welcome to join. Members of the list may post questions about adaptive products such as Screen reader and magnification software, note takers, braille displays, braille embossers, smart phones and tablets or any other adaptive product used by the visually impaired.
