Registering for this WebinarNov 29, 2011

Dear sir or madame,

I have two questions considering this Webinar.

1) I am blind. Will i be able to get something out of this webinar? In the description, IO read that there is a "visual" part in this webinar.

2) As a result of my being blind, I am using a screen reader software and the site is not accessible for me so I haven't been able to register so far. I'd appreciate your help in this.

Kind regards from Germany,

Eva

The webinar has a spoken part and a visual partNov 29, 2011

Dear Eva,

Please note that this webinar has a spoken part and a visual part as well, with a slideshow and parts of ProZ.com being shown. I don't know if you will be able to get the full content of the webinar by attending then. Staff would be happy to provide a script for the presentation, if that helps as well. Just let me know if it would help. I have registered you for this training session, in the meantime.

Best regards,
Alejandro

A work assignment came up which will prevent me from participating. Will this be recorded so I can re-play it in the evening?
If not, then please make my spot available for someone else.
Thank you,
