New Horizons Program 453

This week on program 453 of New Horizons, we hear how four years of work and research have come to fruition. We hear from Neil Jarvis, president of the Round Table on Information Access for People with a Print Disability, about the Orbit Braille Reader – a low-cost braille display which is set to be a game-changer for blind people all over the world. At the end of the program, some interesting information particularly of concern to Tasmanians who are blind or vision impaired.
