Reading with Refreshable Braille, Part 1

We’re delighted to announce that Sean Randall will be delivering a two-part series on leisure reading using refreshable braille displays this month. Sean is something of a computing and IT mastermind and now works at New College Worcester, training many of their students in the use of assistive technology including screen readers and braille displays.

In part 1, he will discuss the various braille devices available to consumers. The benefits of a Brailliant over an Orbit, a Canute over a BrailleNote and so on.

He’ll then proceed to go into specific libraries and sources of materials, to include:

  • RNIB: reading Services, Bookshare and NTNM
  • The Seeing Ear National Accessible Library
  • Bibles for the Blind
