New Talk Show Guest, Interviews & AT Blog Carnival This Week

I have some quick news for you as to what is going on here at No limits 2 Learning. I was able to interview my uncle, Hubert Thornburg, who was a pioneering special education teacher in Oregon from the 1950's through the 70's. He saw the origin of special education in Oregon and was asked to be one of the first pioneer teachers for this in the state. I spent two mornings with him while on a family visit in Portland area last week. I have a lot of editing to do, but I think the interview will be interesting and enjoyable when it is done. I hope to have it up and some old pictures he shared with me by the time school starts in September.

The CEO of Notescribe, Jeff Sholl, will be my guest this week on No Limits 2 Learning Live on Blog Talk Radio. The show is being scheduled for Wednesday this week later in the day, but I will have more specifics for you tomorrow after we finalize the time, etc. Notescribe is a great way to put all your information under a search and keyword system. You can enter all your sources for citations so they are viewed in APA format for various media. If you are in college, working on a masters or doctorate - or just doing research, this software would be invaluable to you. The interview will be a chance for the founder to share about the software in more depth as well as share the story of how it came about. I am looking forward to it and hope you can listen in.

Our next edition of the Assistive Technology Blog Carnival is due out July 28. Submissions need to be to me by this Friday, July 25. I know folks are busy and on vacations, etc. so we will post what we get even if it is a smaller one this month. If you have a post to share, please send it to me at

All the best to you!

Out of curiosity do you have transcriptions or anything similar of your podcasts/radio show for those with hearing impairment/auditory processing issues? If so where can we find them?

That is a really good idea. I don't have that at this time. I should play with Dragon Naturally Speaking and the downloadable recordings to come up with something. That is an excellent suggestion. I am working on a site to be a companion to this blog that will have an archive of shows and podcasts, pdfs and tutorials, etc. for my trainings and visitors. It would be nice to have a transcription there for a free download.
I will have to work on that. I imagine it would be very useful. Thanks Kate.
