there are grant monies available for students with disabilities. i would encourage him to look <a href="http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/sbir.htm">HERE</a>. they have good documentation for what they expect from grant projects and they fund disability issues very, very well.<br><br>if you are curious to see some of the titles of the projects that are funded and the amount per year, try <a href="http://silk.nih.gov/public/cbz2zoz.@www.sbirsttr.fy2003.txt">THIS LINK</a> -- who knows, you might even come across my wife's latest project that starts in sept. <br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
If grants result in a good final outcome then I guess I can't complain. I just think many of them, that I've seen anyway, seldom do. I was under the impression that the iSight is nothing more than a web cam. Is it necessary to see who you are talking to? Is it a necessary part of iChat A/V for the program to be able to telecommunicate? Would a microphone work? Smart...wise...,whatever, people want to know.<br><br>drjohn<br>[i]My photographs[i]

well, a microphone might work...then again, i don't think apple built microphone compatibility into iChat. while we are geeky types on this forum, the people at the other end of my conversations are not geeky types so any solution has to be easy. apple has made iChat A/V and iSight easy. you plug in the camera and it works. free (after the initial cost anyway) long distance calls with video included. can't beat it right now. it's not necessary for us to see who we are talking with (unless these cameras can get good shots of the computer screens...now, that would be beneficial), but i didn't know of an easy mac solution that allows long distance calls with just audio. if nothing else, i no longer sit in my boxer shorts while working at home -- iSight has cleaned me up. isn't that benefit enough? <br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
