The cool thing about ATIA is that you can sometimes get an early look at an upcoming product before it arrives at the summer shows. Jeff Gardner, CEO of IRIE-AT, gave J.J. a look at a prototype video magnifier called the Read Easy Evolve. Hear a description of the unit and then a live demo from the Exhibit Hall floor. The conversation then moves toward Braille as Jeff gives an overview of the Braille Buddy embosser and provides some information about accessible phones. And that is just scratching the surface of the products being displayed at ATIA. To learn more about the products mentioned in this interview, and so much more, head over to the IRIE-A.T. website
