Remembering Access Technology Pioneer David Holladay



David Holladay, the cofounder of Raised Dot Computing, and a longtime employee and supporter of Duxbury Systems, has died.
David's impact can be felt both in the early development of talking software for Apple II computers and in his relentless drive to provide the best braille software.
Here is the transcript of an in-depth interview from the Legends and Pioneers of Blindness Assistive Technology series from 2003.

Selling my Hims BrailleSense 6


Hi. I am selling my BrailleSense 6 for $3999 plus shipping and handling. The current price for a new unit is $5,895. It is in mint condition and contains the latest update. I have had it almost a year. That year will be up the latter part of this February. Reason for selling it. I had neck surgery a number of years ago and my fingers I use to read braille are quite numb. I thought I could still read braille to some degree, but I cannot read it well enough to be useful, so I see no reason to keep the device.
