Hi.
well, got some cds, that i had from one of my relatives, then burned to a cd 
and converted to mp3.
now, tried editing the track information, so ti would say the track name, 
artist, album, and not just unknown artist, etc.
well will paste a message below.
could not edit the track information.
and ripped a audio cd, and got jaws 10, and windows media 11. and it gave me 
the information, when i was editing it in windows explorer.
and the track, artist, album, cane up.
so, can any one help.
another question is, is there any software, which can repair corrupted or 
damaged mp3 files, as do not have the original cd, any more.
only the ripped mp3 copy.
a few tracks, muffled, or warped.

and here's the message.

Hi.
well, went to my track in windows media player, stopped the file, as loaded 
it from windows explorer.
well, went to the properties tab, went to content.
tried to edit the information, but it would not let me change any thing, 
like the title , artist, album.
so how do i get to edit my audio tracks, as mp3, instead of saying unknown 
artist?
can you help.
cheers Marvin.

Hello everyone,
?
I wanted to get everyone's advice before I call the registrar's office
to make arrangements for a guide.
?
I'm graduating this Saturday, and am not sure what to do about walking
across the stage to the person to get my diploma, etc.? What have you guys done
who have graduated?? As I understand it you walk up? a ramp, to the person,
shake hands with him an who ever else is there, and walk down the other side.?
Thoughts?
?
P.S.? Disability SErvices said they don't have anything set up, but that
the student just calls the registrar's office and arranges for a guide if
they wish.

Hi Harry,

When I graduated I practiced first a few days before so I would have
an idea of how the route was  set up and then I could do it on my own.
However, I had a small graduation for just my small college, so that
may not work if you're in a general university graduation. Maybe talk
to the registrar and see if you can practice beforehand. You can also
try asking someone you know who is graduating to be your guide.

Amusingly, at our graduation the people working were nervous because I
guess the lighting near the steps to go off the stage wasn't very
good, and they were afraid people would fall off the stage! I think
overall I was at an advantage!

I sat at one side of the stage during my junior college graduation,
then walked across the stage to sit at another side of the stage in a
chair located there.  I think the disabilities office helped with
that.  I don't see why you couldn't just call the registrar's
office
and arrange for a guide and a special place to sit.  Good ideas,
Harry.Beth

Hi Harry,
For high school, I just had the person ahead of me walk me to the stairs
(ramp in your case) and then they walked across and I just went after them.
I'd practiced the day of though cause we'd had a rehearsal as a group.
Sometimes the people giving you the diploma might direct you, though this
didn't happen in my case. The person ahead of me just waited for me on the
other side of the stage and then we walked back to our seats together. I
didn't know this person beforehand but it wasn't too difficult to ask
them.
Good luck, and congratulations on your grad.
Sarah

A petition has been started by George McDermith at 
<http://www.petitiononline.com/brldis/petition.html>http://www.petitiononline.com/brldis/petition.html

asking Braille display manufacturers to base their drivers on the 
human interface protocol, found on all Windows computers.  Such a 
design philosophy will ensure that users can be certain of having 
support for their Braille display on any computer, not just one which 
has been custom-configured for such access, and will eliminate the 
need to depend on specific screen reader drivers.



The text of the petition reads as follows:



"To: Braille display manufacturers
We, the undersigned, who are Braille display users, friends and 
family of Braille display users, and teachers of the blind,
*: Believe that accessibility to information for the blind on a par 
with their sighted piers is a right. Believe that due to this right, 
and due to the cost of Braille displays, accessing Braille through 
the use of Braille displays should not be limited by the type of 
screen reading solution used by the blind.
*: Strongly request that all manufacturers of Braille displays cease 
basing the drivers of their Braille displays off of particular screen 
reader drivers, but rather base all Braille display drivers off of 
the Human User Interface Protocol, which can be found on all Windows computers.
*: This will allow true portability and equal access to information 
for the blind, as they will be able to use their display with any 
computer. This will create greater competition in the market for the 
best Braille display to stand out, grant greater literacy in Braille 
through greater access to electronic Braille books and other 
materials, and support the right of all blind people to have 
accessibility anywhere."

Hey Harry, 

When I graduated both high school and college, I walked across the stage
totally independently with my guide dog. I made it very clear that if at all
possible, I wanted to walk across by myself. During my college graduation,
someone walked behind me in the aisle of seats, just to make sure I was
going the right way, and then that person stopped at the stage, allowing me
to go up completely on my own, where I shook hands with the people I needed
to shake hands with and received my diploma cover. The  person who was
assisting me went around backstage, I think, and met me at the other side,
once I came down the stairs, to help make sure I got back to the correct
seat.

I don't remember that much about my high school graduation, sorry! Haha! 

Take care, 

Liz

Hello everyone,
?
Thanks for the suggestions.? I'm going to go by the registrar's office
today and see what they say/what has been done in the past (I believe one person
did it on his own, an another had a guide).
?
I'll let you guys know!

Harry

Hi Harry,
For high school, I just had the person ahead of me walk me to the stairs
(ramp in your case) and then they walked across and I just went after them.
I'd practiced the day of though cause we'd had a rehearsal as a group.
Sometimes the people giving you the diploma might direct you, though this
didn't happen in my case. The person ahead of me just waited for me on the
other side of the stage and then we walked back to our seats together. I
didn't know this person beforehand but it wasn't too difficult to ask
them.
Good luck, and congratulations on your grad.
Sarah

Hello everyone,
?
I wanted to get everyone's advice before I call the registrar's office
to
make arrangements for a guide.
?
I'm graduating this Saturday, and am not sure what to do about walking
across the stage to the person to get my diploma, etc.? What have you guys
done who have graduated?? As I understand it you walk up? a ramp, to the
person, shake hands with him an who ever else is there, and walk down the
other side.? Thoughts?
?
P.S.? Disability SErvices said they don't have anything set up, but that
the
student just calls the registrar's office and arranges for a guide if they
wish.
?
Harry

I really want to study abroad next year. I was curious about how those of you
who have studied abroad liked it, and if there were difficulties that you would
not have faced if you had stayed back. For example, how did you get your
textbooks in an accessible format, and were the professors abroad willing to
work with you? As far as the culture is concerned, did you find that people were
less accepting of you in other countries? I really want to study abroad even if
it would be a challenge, but i guess i am trying to figure out what i should
plan for, or if there is anything i should do in advance to prepare.
Thanks
Cindy

Hi Cindy.  Where are you planning to study? Once I know the 
country I can get more information for you.  I've never studied 
abroad, but might be able to help as far as the cultural aspects, 
depending on the country you're planning to go to.
Hope and Beignet
