We've all enjoyed Anna's reports from and about Voices, and she's certainly an appropriate member to illustrate participation in the program!

Check out the pages, linked above.

Feedback on ErgoPod
This afternoon, at Dance Marathon's Pediatric Ability Event, I ran into the visually impaired individual who has been using the ErgoPod on Friday, a week ago (I was not present at the time). She made a point of telling me that she was extremely enthusiastic about the able assistance she had received while using the ErgoPod at Taubman and afterwards. One librarian had assisted her in adjusting some of the ErgoPod computer elements, and another staff member accompanied her to a private room (Group Study Room?) where she could listen to her speaking machine without the noise interrrupting others. Anyhow, she extended her appreciation to all who helped her, and she promised to return to use the Ergopod whenever she could.
