Acronym anxiety.

When you see NLP in somebody's bio and you wonder.... Is it the nightmare of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and you have to run away, or is it Natural Language Processing and you want to talk with them?

Does anyone have experience producing slides for a course that are genuinely accessible?

I'd like to use PDF slides to show text, equations, images, tables, and plots in support of a mostly traditional lecture. I'd also like to make those slides available to the students as a study aid (I am not following any particular textbook). I would like this material to be as accessible as possible to Blind and Visually Impaired students. Anyone have any advice or experience?

Do I need to use this microphone? 

@glitternoodle Wow, is that a secretary bird in your avatar? I love secretary birds!

Ooh, the abstract I submitted the other day was not desk rejected, so that's something!

Re- , since my first one was over a year and two careers ago. I'm an instructional technology consultant at a Big 10 school. I started 2 weeks ago & I love it so far- it's a tech team full of humanities people.

My MS is in library science, MEd in curriculum & instruction, BA is English and Journalism. I've worked in public and academic libraries lately and spent 12 years teaching high school English and journalism. Married to a sociologist and have a 9 year old and a 13 year old.

My friend is defending her diss on Halloween. She is doing her diss on a Victorian ghost story man.
SO she is going to defend in full Victorian goth. She's got lace. She's got cameo brooches. She's got black shawls. She's got the hair. She's ready to show up n be spooky.

I'm so proud of her.

So, the journal I am setting up finally has a submissions guide up. applyinglinguistics.org/submis
If you are an applied linguist or adjacent practitioner (e.g. language teacher, administrator, materials producer, etc.) consider submitting. :OpenAccess: :CreativeCommons:

Some day I hope to find a community of #K12 teachers on here.

I got close with scholar.social, but they're geared for higher ed.

Aargh, . Why is the first spelling suggestion wrong looking right? ::BlobCatGoogly:
