New Announce-Only Mailing List to Distribute News and Information Regarding Blindness Technology


David Goldfield
 

Many thanks to the list owner who has given me permission to post the following announcement.


From David Goldfield:


Many years ago an amazing woman named Amy Ruell ran a wonderful and memorable mailing list called Amy’s Filters and Forwards. Subscribers to her list received email announcements from other mailing lists regarding new products and services, product upgrades and other messages of interest to the visually impaired. I found that list to be informative and invaluable. Sadly, the list ceased operations.

I often do a little of what Amy had done where I send similar announcements to mailing lists to which I’m subscribed. I have decided to start my own announce-only list providing what I hope will be a similar service.

I’m subscribed to many different mailing lists and I also regularly keep up with the latest news in the blindness technology field. This list will be comprised of mailings containing these various announcements. The types of emails that I plan to distribute may include the following:

·         News regarding hardware and software upgrades

·         New blindness products and services

·         News regarding enhancements to blindness services

·         Employment opportunities which may be of interest or relevance to the visually impaired

·         Upcoming webinars and conferences dealing with blindness technology

·         How-to articles containing tips and tricks on using mainstream technology of interest to the visually impaired, such as the iPhone, Microsoft Office, etc.

 

Whenever possible I will also include a URL at the bottom of each announcement leading to the original source material.

While the list won’t consist of any back and forth discussions I do expect that this will be a medium to high traffic list.

Since this list has been formed I will no longer be submitting announcements to other lists to which I’m subscribed. People who wish to continue receiving these announcements must subscribe to the new list.

To subscribe to the list, send email to

Tech-vi+subscribe@groups.io

If you have material that you’d like me to submit to the list, please send it to

Tech-vi+owner@groups.io

Please include the source URL when sending me the material. If a source link is not included I will not post your announcement. If you wish to submit an announcement regarding an upcoming webinar or conference please include a link containing more information, such as a description and a registration form. The announcement should be relevant to blindness technology and I reserve the right to decide whether it will or won’t be submitted to the list.

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who you think may be interested in this mailing list. Before you forward this announcement to another mailing list or online forum please contact the moderator of that forum before posting this announcement and inquire as to whether announcements such as this are permitted on the owner’s mailing list or forum.

Many thanks for reading this and I am hoping that this new announce-only list will be of some value to you. I won’t claim that the list will be nearly as comprehensive as Amy’s original list as I don’t feel that I have the time needed to even try and duplicate her efforts. However, it is my hope that the list will help people to keep up with the latest news and trends in the blindness technology space.

Here is hoping that all of you will try to stay as safe and healthy as possible during these trying times. May our Lord bless you.

Subscribers to her list received email announcements from other mailing lists regarding new products and services, product upgrades and other messages of interest to the visually impaired. I found that list to be informative and invaluable. Sadly, the list ceased operations.

I often do a little of what Amy had done where I send similar announcements to mailing lists to which I’m subscribed. I have decided to start my own announce-only list providing what I hope will be a similar service.

I’m subscribed to many different mailing lists and I also regularly keep up with the latest news in the blindness technology field. This list will be comprised of mailings containing these various announcements. The types of emails that I plan to distribute may include the following:

·         News regarding hardware and software upgrades

·         New blindness products and services

·         News regarding enhancements to blindness services

·         Employment opportunities which may be of interest or relevance to the visually impaired

·         Upcoming webinars and conferences dealing with blindness technology

·         How-to articles containing tips and tricks on using mainstream technology of interest to the visually impaired, such as the iPhone, Microsoft Office, etc.

 

Whenever possible I will also include a URL at the bottom of each announcement leading to the original source material.

While the list won’t consist of any back and forth discussions I do expect that this will be a medium to high traffic list.

Since this list has been formed I will no longer be submitting announcements to other lists to which I’m subscribed. People who wish to continue receiving these announcements must subscribe to the new list.

To subscribe to the list, send email to

Tech-vi+subscribe@groups.io

If you have material that you’d like me to submit to the list, please send it to

Tech-vi+owner@groups.io

Please include the source URL when sending me the material. If a source link is not included I will not post your announcement. If you wish to submit an announcement regarding an upcoming webinar or conference please include a link containing more information, such as a description and a registration form. The announcement should be relevant to blindness technology and I reserve the right to decide whether it will or won’t be submitted to the list.

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who you think may be interested in this mailing list. Before you forward this announcement to another mailing list or online forum please contact the moderator of that forum before posting this announcement and inquire as to whether announcements such as this are permitted on the owner’s mailing list or forum.

Many thanks for reading this and I am hoping that this new announce-only list will be of some value to you. I won’t claim that the list will be nearly as comprehensive as Amy’s original list as I don’t feel that I have the time needed to even try and duplicate her efforts. However, it is my hope that the list will help people to keep up with the latest news and trends in the blindness technology space.

Here is hoping that all of you will try to stay as safe and healthy as possible during these trying times. May our Lord bless you.
