Hi Bevi

I noticed that Simply Accessible is holding a 90-minute virtual seminar on
accessible maps on March 19th. Details are at
There is no price up yet, but they are reasonable in pricing.

I am not connected with them in any way. I just happen to know about it
from Twitter.

I seem to recall articles by T.V. Raman about accessible Google Maps, but I
cannot find anything on Google just now. I only found a few threads in some
Google Groups. Maybe you will have better luck if you search.

I hope this gets you a bit further in your search.

Regards, Karen Mardahl
