Hi Jacob & Mike,

Thank you for inviting us to attend your meeting tomorrow. We have 3 staff who will be in attendance. They will arrive at 10 
a.m. I have provided their names, titles, and what they can address below:

Wayne Watanabe, IT Service Delivery Manager
On board systems and website

Charles Belcher, Sales and Customer Service
Schedules and bus stops

Melony Joyce, Quality and Accessible Services
Service restructures being planned for Sept 2012

I have also attached a letter from Metro's webmaster with his response to your questions about the website accessibility. I 
haven't had time to get it translated into Braille, but would be happy to do so and provide as many copies as you'd like to 
distribute to your group at a later date if you would prefer. Otherwise, I hope an electronic version will be made available to 
your group members if possible.

Hope you have a great meeting!
DeAnna

Hello DeAnna
Well with website is about timetables page and also moving around on the site with screen reader text to speech program 
not having headers on the website  issue with the timetables on the website is that bus stops have more information so they 
not on same line so not line up with the row Collin also you do not know what line you on because time just keep going when 
the screen reader reads the page.  There needs to be the route number Collin at the beginning of every row of times for the 
stops.  On the computer stop and bus announcements when all metro busses have it and what is the time line?
Also just general information on bus routes and changes with bus system and some about new lines of rapped line that will 
be coming out soon.  having tactual Braille maps of routes bus systems?.  How metro make the timetables or stop pull bus 
route accessible?  The meeting has anywhere from 10 to 20 people is my guess there could be more or less never know on 
that. also if you bring any materials that they in Braille accessible.  Have any other questions let me know or president of the 
NFB Seattle chapter Mike Mello his info and the address for the location of the meeting is  bellow.
Sincerely
Jacob Struiksma

Hi Jacob,

Thank you for the invitation and for being detailed about the kinds of things you would like to talk with a Metro representative 
about. Let me confer with some colleagues and see if we can find someone who is available and can speak to the issues
