This might not be the most intelligent response but... How cool! All sorts of people conversing and processing our world, its senses and messages... I love technology, I love ideas, I love possibilities, communication and maps.... Now if Google would stop being so evil with their licensing

My name is Josh and I am a new list member. I am blind, use screen readers such asJaws by Freedom Scientific and NVDA from www.nvda-project.org . I joined thiss list because I use a free gps program for blind people called Loadstone gps. I was wondering if someone on this list could create a tool which would turn an open streetmap .osm file into a loadstone database file, or perhapsa loadstone points file such as those which can be obtained from the loadstone point share exchange website?
Also I got a small .osm file for my area and imported it into loadstone...yes there is a tool at www.rmpro-hosting.com/ls/ and www.loadstone-gps.com that will convert .osm files but the .osm files must be 2mb or less in size. I would like a tool that wiill convert a big osm file like the 130mb pennsylvania.osm file that I got. Also does anyone know about how many points of interest there are for the united states in .osm format? in my city, Reading Pennsylvania zip code 19602 ththe .osm loadstone converter which is limited by file size included 78 pois(points of interest.) And for example I know there's a subway restaurant and a quiznos that are in Reading but they are not in the loadstone database that I connverted from the .osm file.
