Portland day 3

[ #19958 ]

Yeah, I missed a day in my journal...I know...

Not a lot to tell so far. Yesterday I went for dinner and drinks with Ovid, ua and Todd (sorry, I didn't get your last name). We had fun, good Lebanese food, cocktails and local beer...mmmmm...

Today I have to finish the presentation I'm doing tomorrow at the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center at the OHSU here in Portland. It's about pVoice of course :). I announced that it would also be about other Open Source Assistive software, but actually, there's not a lot to tell. Apart from "The Hawking Communicator" and "Skipper" (which intends to be a linux distro for people with all kinds of physical disabilities), I've hardly found any active open source projects in this area. Of course, there are a number of initiatives like emacspeak and linux-things for blind people (braille interfaces and stuff), but the focus in my talk will be on people with Celebral Palsy, and I can't say I've found a lot of projects useable for these people.

Anyway, I've got enough to tell about pVoice, so I've got enough preparation to do...
