Chaals,

Is this font available anywhere?  I have checked the RNIB's site (they are
using Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif) and a 10 minute Goggle does not
turn it up anywhere...

It would seem to me that this would/should be a valuable resource to our
community.  Any further info would be appreciated.
