EMPOWERMENT ZONE

Welcome to Empowerment Zone (version 3.9), the home page of Jamal Mazrui! This site (http://www.empowermentzone.com) offers information, ideas, and software related to my interests and the theme of empowerment -- helping individuals and communities achieve self actualization and full citizenship. I hope you'll find it interesting and useful in your own endeavors. I welcome any feedback, as well as suggestions for empowerment resources to highlight in this site.

CONSULTING AS ACCESS SUCCESS

Access Success specializes in the design, development, and support of software with an integrated visual and verbal interface. Our slogan, "Accessible computing -- Successful results," summarizes our conviction that people with disabilities can use computers with success when operating with access.

In recent years, the focus has been on free, open source software for Windows: JAWS Script Exchange (JSX), PDF to Txt (PDF2TXT), IniForm, Layout by Code (LbC), DbDialog, TextPal, FileDir, HomerKit, SayTools, McTwit, FXMax, IEMax, Homer.NET, GrabText, and many Window-Eyes script packages. JAWS scripts for Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 have also been developed in collaboration with others. More information and links are available at the author's site dedicated to accessible programming:
