Hi Karen,

I'm not sure why you reached that error. (I assume we are talking about
Access-Works.) There is a confirmation email that is sent out once you have
completed the registration. The first step of registration
<http://www.access-works.knowbility.org/signup_step1.php> asks for a promo
code before it allows you to continue; that is where you would enter the
code provided.

What is the email you used to register? I will check on the status of your
profile and see what is going on.

Best,

John Sweet
Director of IT, Knowbility Inc.
