#CSUNATC20 Audio: Harpo Updates Some Nostalgic Braille Products For A Modern Age


J.J. becomes the Keymaster in this interview. Okay, "Ghostbusters" movie references aside, J.J. did find that some retro names in A.T. have been updated in some cool new ways. He spoke to Jarek Urbanski, CEO of Harpo, about the soon to be released Mountbatten Tutor and gets an overview of the device's menus and feature set. And if that wasn't old school enough, the duo discuss the return of the Jot a Dot. For those listening to the audio, and not reading the transcript below, J.J. did capture the sounds of both on the quieter than normal CSUN Exhibit Hall floor. To learn more about these products, including the BraillePen Slim, visit the Harpo website
