For quite some time now, I've been looking for a mailing list that
caters to vendors of assistive technology.
As a blind consumer, I would like to know who the various vendors are in
my surrounding area. For example, about a few months ago, I found out of
a vendor of assistive technology near me. I'm told this vendor has been
in the business for about seven years but I never heard of it. Now I'm on
the mailing list and am impressed with the prices and services offered.
I'm sure that there are quite a few of you out there that have experienced
the same thing.
So, I am setting up an unmoderated mailing list called
VAT (Vendors of Assistive Technology).
This list is open to any vendor of assistive technology (e.g., products and
services for the blind, visually impaired, deaf, learning disabled, etc.) who
would like to make themselves known to the public at large.
Feel free to advertise your products and services.
Similarly, if you're a consumer, you can post to the list in order to find
the vendor(s) in your area who sells/repairs product X.
To subscribe to the VAT mailing list, send a message to:
and in the body of the message say:
subscribe VAT "firstname lastname"
For example, the following command will add John Doe to the VAT mailing list.
subscribe VAT "John Doe"
Please circulate this announcement.
