Mostly, they are things from friends that have circulated so much, it's
impossible to tell where they originated.  The only person I could cite is
the friend who sent it, who is not the author.

  I think as long as you cite the source on the web where you found it, you
are alright.  APA Reference Manual has citation suggestions for things found
on the web.

  I taught a braille class for several years and wrote most of the materials
  myself. I think it would be a good program for high school students, but I
  haven't published it because I have a question.  Some of the sentences for
  practicing braille were taken from things I got on the internet....things
  like "my grandmother started a walking program, five miles a day, and we
  haven't seen her since."  The problem is I don't know the source of any of
  the material because the way the internet operates, you never know where
  things originated.  So I don't know how to do it without violating
  copywrite.  I would be willing to send you a copy to try in return for
  feedback on how well it worked for you.

  If anyone knows the answer to the copywrite question, I'd appreciate the
  answer.

  Cheers

  I have attempted to use a couple of programs (Braille Too and another by
  APH- can't recall the name) to instruct high school students who are
  beginning Braille instruction.  I have found that they very quickly
  introduce complex words.  Are there any programs which have a slower and
  more programmed approach?
