Betsy Beaumon, President of Benetech Inc,
and Lisa Wators, Senior Program Manager at, sit down with [Chancey] to discuss many ways that Benitech allows people to read text in alternative formats. Betsy outlines some of the education aspects of image description and math access through the Diagram Center of Benetech labs. Lisa provides us with updates coming to Bookshare in the form of the new advanced search feature, a wider availability of the reading list options and how you can be a part of the library partnership program.
