Hello

I’m the VP of Engineering at Benetech.  Benetech in partnership with the WGBH National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) and the US Fund for DAISY is managing the DIAGRAM Center.  The DIAGRAM Center has been established by the US Department of Education (Office of Special Education Programs or OSEP) to help find ways to make image descriptions in textbooks for print disabled students more effective and less costly.  You can learn more about the DIAGRAM Center and some of the products emerging from the center, such as Poet (an open source web based application for crowd-sourcing image descriptions for books in DAISY format) at:

Benetech also is the organization behind Bookshare – the world’s largest library of accessible ebooks for people with print disabilities.  Bookshare is also funded by OSEP and is free to all students in the U.S.

Thanks
