Not to interrupt, but I sent a few emails to this list, and have not
received replies.  Is there a spot to make sure the emails went through.
Like a notification if the post was sent?

Hi Jewel, this is Helga.  How are you? Remember when I did my research
paper regarding ?œAre Visually Impaired College Students Descriminated
Against?,??and I ask you, if you could give me yur life testimony in how
does your college helps yu and all that? And yu actually told me that your
college does Workshops where they teach Professors how to teach  a Blind
student, or  a visually impaired student, and they actually receive credit
hours for attending the workshops as well! 
Actually you told me that for the powerpoints the professor places a
description of the picture underneath it, and etc.  I just wanted to ask
you, do you know who is in charge in organizing these workshops for the
professors in order to teach a blind or visually impaired student, and
could yu give me their contact number in order to talk to them regarding
this? And also, Would it be possible for yu to give me the contact number
of your DSS adviser, and the DSS office in order to ask them what kind of
accomodations they give a blind or visually impaired student for his or her
class, and also how do they provide these accomodations for them? I?™m just
wondering, since my college does not have any of these workshops in order
to educate professors in how to teach a blind or visually impaired student,
and I?™m actually having some difficulties in my classes because I actually
need to explain to my professors in how they can give me my assignments and
providing them!, since I?™m a blind student.  I really enjoy doing that,
but I?™m not suppose to do so, my college is suppose to train them about
it.  Just to let you know, my DSS adviser doesn?™t coperate with me in
giving my assignments in Braill, and I have a lot of issues with her.  
However, even though I have many issues with her, I would like to inform
her about these workshops, and I actually would like to start one in my
college.  That is why I ask yu for the contacts and who can I talk about
this.  Also, could you tell me the name of yur college? Just curious! I
will really appreciate it  a lot, if yu could help me and give me some
suggestions regarding this.  
Hope to hear from yu soon! Thanks so much and God bless!!
P.S.  By the way, if you want you can contact me on the list, or off list.
Whatever yu prefer Ok? Thanks again for all your time!!
