I find this type of thing all across the teaching spectrum in Ireland:
Registration forms and other documentation in obscure formats readable
only in expensive programs.
Case in point: The registration form for a teacher's association meeting
is in MS Publisher format. Even those places with enterprise licenses for
MS products wouldn't have MS Publisher. Not many schools would have
licenses for this.
How can this be remedied in the long run?
