Subject: If you are interested in the world of digital reading,

then you are invited to learn more about a crowd source initiative 
that will improve the reading experience for everybody, and 
especially those with reading differences.

The DAISY Consortium, a member of the W3C and the Book Industry Study 
Group (BISG) is conducting evaluations of reading Apps and ereaders 
in the market today. The evaluation examines the fundamental 
accessibility and usability of the reading apps (all platforms) or 
devices; many people we are looking for will be using Assistive 
Technology, like a screen reader to perform the tests. However, we 
are also looking for anybody with a reading difference or 
universities and schools that are interested in helping to develop 
the best reading experience possible.

We have set up a landing page that explains exactly what we are 
doing, and it provides an opportunity to get involved.

Please forward to those you feel may be interested.

Please excuse us if you get this more than once.
