The SEE Project

I have received replies from several people involved with the SEE Project , so I will be updating the site soon. From what I gather the funding for the project is winding down which is a shame given the effect it must of had on visually impaired students.

I have found other resources for the visually impaired who are interested in astronomy and sciences in general, and I will be adding them soon.

One of my major goals is to develop this site in such a way that it will work with what ever software visually impaired people use to access the internet. I will need to do more research on that subject, but I am hoping that if anyone who is reading this blog has any ideas or suggestions, that they will contact me. I also need to develop this site to be compatable with text only browsers, so I could also use some advice with that aspect.

I have been thinking about what resources are needed for thost astronomers who are climatically challenged, and will be working on a list of remote viewing sites, astronomy software, radio astronomy, and other subjects that will be of interest to shut-in astronomers.

Site news 02/05/2006

Well nothing to report. I'm still dealing with a bad cold though I did find a few more sites that I will put up the links page. I'm also reading a really good book on HTML "Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML" and it looks like the right book for me to be learning HTML from.
