I am sorry that I did not respond. When I was was first diagnost with
diabetes ws was give a lot of print material. I asked them then about
putting it in an alternative format. They told me there wasn't any that
they knew about and locally they did not know where to go to get it done.
Since I live in Iowa I was lucky enough that the Iowa Department for the
Blind put most of the material in braille for me.
The material they gave me came mostly from the ADA so if the main people
don't give anything to local ones I think we still need to contact them.
I know there are a lot of material out there but things change all the time.
