A Busy Week at CSUN 2012

Lee Huffman

Dear AccessWorld readers,

All I can say is WOW, what a busy, action-packed week!

The 27th Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference, otherwise known as CSUN 2012, was held February 27 through March 3 in sunny San Diego, California. It's impossible to take in all of the pre-conference workshops, educational sessions, forums, technology exhibits, and group meetings, but the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) was there in full force and did our best to experience as much of CSUN as we could!

AFB staff members were involved in several educational session presentations, "Town Hall" style discussions, and meetings with national leaders in the mainstream and assistive technology arenas. We also exhibited at the CSUN conference to promote the vast resources of our website, www.afb.org, including AccessWorld, and to interact with conference goers.

In order to help keep AccessWorld readers up to date with the goings on at CSUN, AFB was proud to sponsor the Blind Bargains podcast coverage of CSUN 2012. The AccessWorld team encourages you to log on to the Blind Bargains Audio Content page, which features great interviews, presentations, and updates on the latest in technology news from the conference.

It's not too early to mark your calendars and save the date for the 28th annual CSUN conference: February 25 to March 2, 2013, again being held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego.

The AccessWorld team hopes you enjoy this issue, which includes reviews of several recent software releases, a variety of apps, and a tribute to Fred Gissoni.
