I would also support having a discussion on matters related to electronic
texts. From my point of view as a blind scholar, they open research
collections to my personal investigation without having to rely on or pay a
human reader. So, along with the other problems and advantages, they will
serve to open access to research to a limited but eager group of colleagues.
