Hi Karen,

I am sorry that you reached someone in our office who could not help you.
In an earlier email, I copied John Sweet (copied here again) who is the one
to answer your questions and who manages the AccessWorks database.

Thank you for your interest in participating, your help is greatly
appreciated.

Sincerely,
Sharron

Katie,
will a person get a confirmation  once they register?
while I have a qualifying disability, I met with some uniqueness after I
joined.
For example I did not reach a field asking for your code so might have
missed a step.

I just tried phoning the 512 number provided on the site to check, only to
reach a person who first blamed my screen reader, i. e. only population who
might have a qualifying disability, then after gelling me he did not care
about my efforts to learn if I am in the program hung up on an
international caller.
I would hope those administrating such a program, understand w3c rules
themselves, or at least have manners.
Can you guide me here?
Thanks,
Karen
