Good afternoon Vicki,
The two workstations that I am speaking of are setup to allow
individuals with print impairments to digitize printed materials. To
the best of my knowledge the workstations consist of a computer, a
scanner and the Kurzweil 1000 application. One of these workstations
is located in a North York branch, the other is at the Reference
library at Yonge and Bloor.
