First, allow me to thank you for the magnificent job you do with this site. the updates are incredible. next, thanks very much for posting the audio on the Blio. information on its accessibility has been as scarce as hen's teeth. At least now we know it can be used by those of us using screen readers.The native synthesizer is...uhm...doable. Now, we await its debut...and hope that the reality matches the hype.

even if the built in speech is ok access to over a million books has never been done for the blind. I hope they have mac support soon.

Another excellent display of how the NFB changes what it means to be blind. Braille books by the score. Outstanding.
