Your Feedback Matters!

Dear AccessWorld readers,

One year ago at this time, AccessWorld implemented a "Comment on this article" link at the end of each article to bring your comments, questions, and ideas right to my Inbox. Since that time, many of you, hundreds, in fact, have written to share your thoughts, and many letters are shared in the monthly Letters to the Editor column. These letters have been extremely valuable to the AccessWorld team and have helped us better understand your access interests and challenges.

For those of you who have written in, thank you, and for those who still haven't taken the opportunity, I encourage you to send me your comments on articles and your thoughts on any topics you would like to see addressed in AccessWorld.

The AccessWorld team hopes you enjoyed the July "Back to School" issue and gained information to help with getting ready for the upcoming school year. We would like to thank our sister site FamilyConnect for working with us to promote the "Back to School" issue to its visitors. If you are the parent of a child with vision loss or you know a child with vision loss, we certainly encourage you to visit Family Connect to learn about all its resources.

Also, if you are new to vision loss or know someone who is, we encourage you to visit AFBs new site, VisionAware, which has many resources, tips, and information on eye conditions for adults of all ages who are blind or visually impaired.

The AccessWorld team hopes you enjoy the August 2012 issue and encourages you to send us your feedback!
