April ebookworm show

Join us on Thursday, April 15 at 3:00 p.m. central
time for the monthly online
ebookworm show! The show is hosted by Tom Peters of
TAP Information Services and
sponsored by the Mid-Illinois Talking Book Center.
Our guest will be Peter
Scialli. Dr. Scialli is an Associate for Technical
Projects with Bookshare.org
(www.bookshare.org), which is a project of the
Benetech Initiative. Bookshare is
an online community enabling scanned books to be
shared, thus leveraging the
collections of thousands of individuals who regularly
scan books for use by
print-impaired individuals

To listen to the interview and join in the discussion:
1. Go to http://www.mitbc.org/meeting/
2. Click on the “auditorium” link in the information
area on the left
3. Enter your name. No password is necessary.
4. A small software plug-in will automatically
download.
5. Once you are in the room, you can communicate
either via the text chat
window in the left center area of the screen, or, if
you have a microphone
connected to your PC, you can press and hold the
Control key to speak to the
group.

The software used for the program is iVocalize which
allows participants to
communicate with voice over IP, text chat, and allows
users to co-browse web
pages and Power point presentations.
