> Hi everyone, I was wondering if you would be so kind as to help
> me: I am a
> student in UWIC, Cardiff Wales. The university has a subscription
> to the
> above journal and I have also purchased a personal subscription
> but have
> been told that individuals can not access the journal in an electronic
> format only institutes can.
> Due to my disability it would be very beneficial to have the journal
> provided in a digital or electronic format, considering this is a
> journalat the forefront of disability issues I thought that equal
> access would be
> of paramount importance.
> I am also finding that it is rare within the academic community to
> providetext books in variable formats, I am wondering has anybody
> else come up
> against these issues and able to give me some tips and advice.
> I think that it is important to note that I do not have a visual
> impairment, the reason I say this is that I know there is support
> from the
> RNIB but having cerebral palsy I do not qualify for this support.
> On another note I would like to say hello to everyone in this chat
> forumbecause I am a new member and I look forward to meeting some
> of you at
> the "Disability Studies" conference in Lancaster.
> Yours Faithfully,
> Damian Chick.
