In the July-August 2002 issue of the Forum, the name of Jim Gashel was misspelled ("How I Spent President's Day Weekend, Or What I Did on My Mid-winter Trip to Baltimore"). We regret the error.
There was an error in the address for the Access Technology Competencies Task Force web site, where one can view and comment upon lists of suggested competencies for assistive technology specialists. The correct address is: http://www.tsbvi.edu/technology/afb/.
Because of the ever-changing nature of the Internet and e- mail, the e-mail address given for Philmore Productions ("Here and There," September 2002) was incorrect. The new one is email@example.com.
The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people.
