PDFs and Databases --Daman

This week has been very busy trying to finish up a project and starting a new project. I am preparing to test a complicated PDF file next Tuesday with a screen reader in the USDA Target Center. The Target Center is an excellent resource on assistive and accessible technology. I am starting on a new database integration project and I figured out how to create drop down menus and look up tables in Microsoft Excel. This week I had the opportunity to attend a hearing on the CLASS Act in Senate HELP Committee and also have a tour of the US Capitol. At the US Capitol, they put me with the wrong group once I got up the elevator because everyone else went up the stairs. So, that made for an interesting adventure! I also had a meeting at the Office of Disability Employment Policy where I met a lot of their staff, it was a great networking opportunity! This week was a busy week when it’s comes to dinner. I had dinner plans four nights in a row! Tomorrow I am going to the National Portait Muesum with other AAPD interns and staff.
