>Hi everyone,
>Because we were informed by the hotel that their network would not 
>reliably support the live streaming of the convention, we are taking 
>an approach which has recently also been used by several other NFB 
>affiliates such as Wisconsin.  During the convention, we will make 
>audio files available that can be downloaded or played 
>directly.  With the help of our colleagues at Blind Incorporated, 
>audio files of convention recordings can be accessed at 
><http://nfbmn.blindinc.org>http://nfbmn.blindinc.org.  We will 
>notify our NFBMN-NEWS list and also share on twitter when each file 
>becomes available and will try to provide a link.  If you go to the 
>above link, you will probably see a rough list of files from which 
>you can choose.  We might be able to clean it up a little but this 
>is still in the works.
>We will try to make a couple of files available during each 
>convention session and will name them to indicate the session and 
>the number of the file within the session.
>We will try streaming again in the future, but this will give us an 
>alternate way to make the convention available to you.  Please be 
>patient as this is the first time we've tried this.
>This should work similarly to clicking on a link to any MP3 
>files.  In most cases, the file will start to play immediately.  In 
>some cases, it may start a download depending upon one's 
>settings.  If you are using Windows and you want to download the 
>file, you should be able to press your "Applications" key and pick 
>the "Save Target As" option.
>We will try to keep you informed as we progress, and perhaps try a 
>test file sometime before the convention starts on Saturday morning.
>Best regards,
>Steve Jacobson
