Breaking Down The Barriers of Science And Engeneering Using Adaptive Technology

Some of you may know the presenter of this session, but since I don't have permission to link to the presenters journal, I'm just going to give his name. Noel Romey was the presenter and he did a great job. He figured out how to make a highly graphical chemical engeneering program accessible. Basically, it blew me away. I was slightly better at science than math, but still not great. He was able to connect little pictures in the software to design this chemical plant. Then, he can emboss it on a Tiger embosser to get a look at it. I'm doing a bad job of explaining this, but I was pretty much amazed. I don't want to hear that it's not possible for blind people to do stuff with science again...
