  • Hi Ira:

    Thanks for the work on this topic. Most people have little understanding of learners with language processing issues let alone the need for accessibility. Working my way through some of your work, blogs, etc. I appreciate your voice and contribution.

  3. 3. Challenging Text
  4. 7. Dere's no guy livin' dat knows Brooklyn t'roo an t'roo, because it'd take a guy a lifetime just to find his way aroun' duh goddam town. So like I say, I'm waitin' for my train t' come when I sees dis big guy standin' deh -- dis is the foist I eveh see of him. Well, he's lookin' wild, y'know, an' I can see dat he's had plenty, but still he's holdin' it; he talks good an' is walkin' straight enough. So den, dis big guy steps up to a little guy dat's standin' deh, an' says, "How d'yuh get t' Eighteent' Avenoo an Sixty-sevent' Street?" he says..." "How long you been livin' heah," I says. All my life," he says. " I was bawn in Williamsboig," he says. "An I can tell you t'ings about dis town you neveh hoid of," he says.
  5. 8. "Yeah," I says "Yeah," he says. "Well, den you can tell me t'ings about dis town dat nobody else has eveh hoid of, either. Maybe you make it all up yoehself at night," I says, "befoe you go to sleep -- lie cuttin' out papeh dolls, or somp'in" "Oh yeah," he says. "You're pretty wise, ain't yuh?" "Duh boids ain't using my head for Lincoln's statue yet," I says. "But I'm wise enough to know a phoney when I see one..." Thomas Wolfe, Only The Dead Know Brooklyn

  24. 39. Simple Mac OS TTS Open System Preferences - it’s the fourth item in the Apple menu. In the “System” section, usually about the fourth line of icons, there is an icon labeled “Speech” which looks like an old fashioned microphone. Click on the Speech icon.
  25. 40. Simple Mac OS TTS Select any key combination that isn’t already used for something else. Now all you need to do is select some text in an application - I suggest you try it first with Safari or Text Edit - and hit your keys and you should hear Mac OS X read out whatever you have selected!
