Multi-Line Braille in the Classroom, Tuesday 14 November at 4:00 PM

The braille community is buzzing about the next generation of braille display: devices which can show anything from tables to tactile graphics at the press of a button are now a reality, and braille users around the world are putting the technology through its paces.

But how do they fit into a classroom setting? This event, brought to you by VIEW and the Braillists Foundation, will help us find out:

In the first half, we will hear from HumanWare, Orbit Research, Dot and Bristol Braille Technology, all of whom are developing multi-line braille and/or tactile graphics displays.

In the second half, an expert panel of QTVIs will discuss how current practice might evolve to take advantage of emerging braille technologies.

There will be time at the end for you to ask questions of your own, so come prepared!
