#CSUN16 Audio: APH Is a Major Player in The Year of Braille


In this interview, J.J. speaks with Larry Skutchan, Director of Technology Product Research at The American Printing House for the Blind (APH.) JJ and Larry talk about APH's new Orbit Reader 20 Braille display which should sell for around $500 when it is released later this year. APH is also partnering with Freedom Scientific to provide students with a copy of Jaws at no cost during their school years. Larry also spills the beans on a possible forthcoming 40-cell braille display. This is a wide-ranging interview, with many topics covered.

Now, I want one of these. I'm a little confused as to where to place my pre-order, but oh yes I want one. This is what we've needed in the market for a very, very long time to disrupt the insane price-gouging that's been happening for over twenty years.
