Subject: [AI] Classes for Office 2007
I am pasting below some information that some of you
may be interested in.
Dakota State University is happy to announce that its
Introduction to Computers Class is being taught online
this fall with one section specifically designed

September 2 and runs for 15 weeks. Our staff is
making sure that the text will be accessible for
reader users, users of Braille displays, and users of
Dragon Naturally Speaking with JAWS and J-Say.
The course is entitled "Introduction to Computers."

students from outside the United States.

on-line registration form or by calling our office at
800-641-4309. The student will want to identify
Keith Bundy's section as the one they are interested
in. The Course Prefix is CSC 105 and the SYN number is
