Researchers to Demonstrate Their Solution for Cheaper Braille Displays at Chicago Haptics Conference


by J.J. Meddaugh

Stop us if you've heard this one before. A team of researchers are developing a multiline braille display that could dramatically reduce the cost and increase braille literacy. This isn't a rerun, rather another in a growing list of projects aiming to combat the fall of braille adoption in recent years. Sile O’Modhrain and Brent Gillespie, two researchers from the University of Michigan will present their findings at the World Haptics Conference in Chicago on Tuesday.

According to an article from the Economist, The screen of the device includes a grid of pins the diameter of Braille dots. Normally, the tops of these pins are flush with the screen’s surface. When needed, though, they can be pushed upwards to create patterns representing Braille symbols. This is possible because each pin rests on a silicone-rubber membrane that sits above a small cavity. The cavity is, in turn, connected to a tiny pneumatic line and valve. When air is blown through the valve into the cavity, the membrane balloons up, pushing the pin above the screen’s surface."

The researchers anticipate that a display the size of a tablet, with 26 lines of 40 cells each, could be sold for under $1,000.

Tyler Spivey has made it Possible to Play the Game Boy Title Pokémon Crystal with Speech


by J.J. Meddaugh

Tyler Spivey has done it again. Access to a popular text adventure on Game Boy may have been one of the last things that anyone thought was possible, but a new project has done just that. The Pokecrystal access project is a set of scripts which provide access to the game Pokémon Crystal using a Game Boy emulator and text-to-speech. As text is displayed on the screen, the scripts allow the user to read it, understand their surroundings, and play a game intended for a portable console. It's one of the few examples we've seen which gives access to a game on a mainstream gaming platform. Check the link on this post to get more details including a downloadable version that you can play.

End of an Era: Duxbury Systems Officially Discontinues MegaDots Due to Lack of UEB Support


by J.J. Meddaugh

The transition to Unified English Braille has meant some tough decisions for companies who produce software that involves braille translation. To this end, Duxbury Systems has confirmed that their secondary transcription product, MegaDots, has been officially discontinued and is no longer being sold. MegaDots was originally produced by Raised Dot Computing, later Braille Planet, and was the chief competitor to Duxbury's own product until it was purchased in August of 1999. The interface and feature set of MegaDots had a loyal following, and Duxbury Systems continued to sell both products until the recent announcement. MegaDots does not support the UEB code, which will become the standard in the United States by 2016. Technical support will be available through July 4, 2016 and those who purchased MegaDots recently are being given the opportunity to transition to Duxbury. The complete message from their website is below.

The audio clubhouse seems to be a bit more crowded this week. Joe has returned to find his buddy J.J. in the midst of releasing version 2.0 of the Blind Bargains app for iOS. And to celebrate said app's release, it seems that Michael Doise and Steven Clower rolled up to the party in style with their canoe. Wait, that isn't right. Dave Williams showed up to the event with his Canute Braille Display. Yeah, that's what happened. Well that and a tip plus "Sound Off" and "Last Word" also happened. Along with a secret sound!

Blind Bargains Qast 9: Functional, Decorative And Inclusive BBQ


by Joe Steinkamp

What's in a name? Quite a lot, actually. For Superman and mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent, it can define who he is and what he does depending on which persona he has adopted at any given time.
For Clint Eastwood and the classic Speghetti Westerns, the man with no name" signified that the movie's protagonist was powerful beyond a simple label or surname. Thanks to our amazing listeners, and their helpful comments on a recent survey, our little series has a moniker that not only rolls off the tongue easily, and trust us that helps in podcasting a lot, but it can mean a great many things when you hear it spoken. With that said, and thanks to Alex Hall for the suggestion, we are delighted to bring you episode 9 of the Blind Bargains Qast ... or BBQ!

In Like-new Condition Samsung Galaxy Tab S $420.00

Hello, all. I switched to T-mobile, and since doing so, got a tablet. I traded in my Ipad to learn about Android, but am quite frustrated. The tablet has literally sat in a case its entire life, has 0 scratches, has never been dropped, comes with charger, original box. Talkback is already enabled for immediate use. Has 16 GB of memory, built-in cellular, great sound for a tablet, and Android ver. 4.4 Kitcat, I think, but am not familiar with Android devices at all. Does not come with original box. Tablet in case, and charger included. No micro SD card is installed. No sim is installed but can be acquired from T-mobile. I believe it would support ATT, too. Supports Micro SD cards up to 128 GB in size for additional storage. Vibrates with haptic feedback. This is a very fair price. Thanks.

If you want professional sounding audio, take it from me, at this year's NFb...!

If you or your organization wants to record a polished product demo, a vocal performance, or a presentation at the 2015 NFb convention, look no further. I will use my skills in live sound, podcast editing, and audio restoration to insure that your recording meets the highest possible standard. We’ll start with proper mic selection, and go through mixing. If you’ve ever been disappointed in recordings which have been made by others on your behalf, that shouldn’t be the case. This is simply because I record in multi-track. This means that each element is recorded to a separate file for later editing/mixing. Even professionals can find the process of getting a good recording, and good sound in a room difficult. That’s why most of them elect to record with equipment similar to that which I will have on cite. The hardware includes, but is not limited too a zoom h1, and h6, as well as an Olympus dm4, with several cables and other devices to allow me to connect to PA equipment, and several microphones which can be used simultaneously. I will be available to record from July 4, through the 9th. Contact me for any further information such as rates and scheduling.
