Subject: Syntactic research of Biblical Hebrew

Dear linguists,

I am looking for syntactic research of Biblical Hebrew, preferably in
the generative framework. Any references/suggestions are welcome. 
I will post a summary if there is enough interest.
Thank you very much,
Asya

Subject: Pahalavi Fonts

Hello,

I am looking for Pahalavi Fonts to work on Pahalavi Texts. 
Would anyone know of a site where such Fonts are available?
Please send an email to doctormsh-paris.fr 

I promise to post a summary if the fonts are available.

Thanks a lot,
Raymond Doctor

Message 3: Software and Hardware for the blind...

Subject: Software and Hardware for the blind...


My step-father is blind and he has given me the responsibility of
researching both hardware and software to aid him in utilizing
computer technology despite his disability. Not only would he like to
dictate words and have them typed... but he would also need a program
that could read what was displayed... web-pages, documents, basically
anything. If at all possible, we should avoid Braille programs when
considering this, as his condition has come upon him only recently. I
also hope to find a computer that can perform these functions as well
as cater to a person without a disability. That is to say, a computer
that both my mother, step-dad, and their family could use. I know I'm
being incredibly vague, but any help you may provide would certainly
be appreciated.
Thanks.

Appreciative,
Will
