Great Idea from Assistivetek Blog: Using Google Docs and Text Readers

Sometimes great ideas just come to us as a burst of insight - we have solutions sitting right in front of us and they are just waiting for the right moment to come to life, for us to see how to use them. My friend and a valued mentor, Dr. Brian Friedlander, wrote a great post yesterday on his Assistive Technology Blog about using Google Docs to create accessible tests. Combining the Google Docs and a text reader, there are free versions out there, make this entire method free to you to use.
Brian shared his ideas with great examples and visuals here:

This is a perfect example of pairing together software and online tools to create an accessibility solution. Perfect Pairings was our latest topic on the Assistive Technology Blog Carnival in February. If you like Dr. Friedlander's strategy, maybe you would enjoy exploring some more solutions and ideas on the A.T. Blog Carnival...

All the best to you!

Hey, Lon,
I featured your blog in my post today.

I know, I'm a poor friend for not visiting more often.

You do a great job here.
