Keep posting Jennifer and Heidi---I am not convinced the college board
really knows what they are talking about--depending on WHO you talk with. I
think they all open a booklet and repeat back those words of a reader and
scribe without truly digging into the situation...truly one of the toughest
ways to take any exam or do work.

If it is really a matter of getting the test into a screen reading
format--well that is easy and can be done in a few hours--for a
beginner--less for someone with real skill on making work accessible
