It was a great seminar!  I enjoyed seeing everyone and hearing about
the various technologies.  The new VR Stream is really cool!  I also
learned that I fail when it comes to using the Braille Note.  :)

I would love to learn more about formatting documents in Word and
using the note taker to its full potential.  I think we could have a
whole seminar dedicated to the internet-how to navigate, downloading
important things like books and music, how to deal with websites that
are less than accessible.  I feel like it is important to know those
things for most jobs and definitely in school.
