Bill Passes in the Senate and House Opening up Greater Access to Braille Technology


by Scott Davert

A big step forward for braille has been authorized by Congress. On July 13, legislation that was introduced by Senator Schumer of New York passed in the senate. This bill, s. 3207 authorizes NLS to begin to distribute braille technology to its patrons. While NLS has been previously able to offer Digital Talking Book Players for audio content it produces and offers through its BARD service, they have not had the authority to utilize funding to distribute the digital braille equivalent. As a braille user, for example, who did not have the money or funding to purchase a braille device, the digital braille files NLS also offers would then not be usable by these patrons.

it's not exactly clear what the next step will be to getting braille devices in to the hands of NLS patrons, nor is it exactly clear what hardware will be used. It may be worth noting that this Government Accountability Office report from April 2016 made mention of the drop in cost to braille technology, and also the fact that distributing said devices could net a huge savings to NLS. One such lower cost option is the Orbit reader 20 makes specific mention of supporting NLS downloaded content internally, that was formally introduced at CSUN the previous month. The Orbit Reader 20 is expected to be available for under $500 later this year. It may also be worth noting that when the Digital Talking Book Players were rolled out to patrons in 2009, [Veterans were the first to receive them.]( http://azcapitoltimes.com/news/2009/09/18/blind-veterans-first-to-go-digital-with-new-%E2%80%98talking-book%E2%80%99-players/)

Bespecular Joins the List of Apps to Help People who are Blind get Sighted Assistance


by Scott Davert

Another app has launched which hopes to be able to provide sighted assistance to people who are blind. Bespecular, is an app which allows you to take a picture, and then record a question regarding that picture either through text or by recording a question via audio. The picture and question will then be submitted to sighted volunteers who can assist with your question. It's also possible to take multiple pictures of the same item and to get multiple answers regarding the same question. Sighted volunteers will then respond with an audio answer to the question, and you then have the opportunity to rate the assistance they provided. At this time, there appears to be no way to get answers delivered in textual format, though the company stated on its website that this app is now in a public preview format. A source link is to a podcast with a walk-through of the app for iOS. It states that the app will always have a free version, and that it will be entirely free to use until the end of 2016. Bespecular is a free download in the iOS App Store, and is also a free download on the Google Play store It does require the creation of an account before you are able to use it, but this process doesn't appear to have any issues. Have you used this app yet? Feel free to leave your experiences in the comments section.

VORail begins to role out on Android


by Scott Davert

As I reported earlier this month, the developers of the social media platform VORail were seeking funding for the development of an Android version of the app. Though at the time of this writing, only $1729 of the $10000 goal has been reached, it appears the developers have begun work on the Android version of the app. It is, like its iOS counterpart, free of charge, but is limited to only using the questions and answers tabs of the system. In a statement recorded on VORail announcing its availability on the Google Play Store, Tom Rosenthal said that it was a "placeholder" version only, and that they were looking for feedback from Android users as to what feature to begin building next. Check out the source link to download the Android version.

Want Vorail on Android? So do the Developers of the app if They can get Funding


by Scott Davert

The developers of Vorail, a rather popular social networking type app which just uses your voice, are looking to bring this platform to Android by raising money through a Kickstarter Campaign. At present, the app is a free download in the iOS App Store. Using voice only (there is no text, video, pictures etc), the app seeks to generate discussion by allowing users to pose questions which other users can respond with answers if they feel like joining the discussion. The app does not require you to give your phone number or to create a password, as it is associated with your iCloud account. At the time of writing, the campaign has raised $1659 of it's goal of $10,000. There appears to be no indication from the developers as to whether the development of an Android app will take place if the financial goal is not met, though the Kickstarter campaign says it will not be funded if the $10,000 amount is not achieved by July 18. For more information, please see the Kickstarter Campaign which also lists several podcasts interviewing the developers and a podcast demonstrating how the app works.

Looking for a new home for an iBill money-reader and Braille Mark money marker

The iBill is a first generation, so it has no headphone jack. It works well though, and has speech or vibration modes. The money marker is by Braille Mark LLC, and has 6 templates with large braille numbers, and the handheld squeezer to mash a braille number into the end of a bill. I'll sell both for $35 US plus shipping. Shipping will likely be from Denver, Colorado in the US.

Hello: I'm looking for the following items as I'm going back to college. Any of these will do, please don't think I'm asking for all of them at once. I'm in need of a 32 cell braillenote, either an Apex or an empowered. If none of these are available and you're wishing to sell your Braillesence, I'd be more than happy to have one of those. In short, I'm looking for something that will work well when I go back to college. Sadly, I would have to pay you monthly via paypal until it's paid off, as I am not wealthy, and could well pay you one hundred to one fifty until it's paid off. also, am looking for a larger desktop braille display, at least sixty to eighty cells. If you are selling any of these and consider me, please, please feel free to Email me? I can start payments next month and will pay you until you are all paid up. Please be willing to trust me enough to ship the unit to me before I've finished, and if you need a signed contract or a paypal contract, I would be willing to do that for you.

Braille Sense U2 for Sale, $2600

Hi folks, Up for grabs is a HIMS Inc. Braille Sense U2, Perkins Keyboard model. I've had this device for about nine months now, thinking it was essential that I had a dedicated notetaker for my current lifestyle. However, I've barely used it at all during this period of time, since my phone paired to my little Braille display proved more than adequate. Therefore, I'd rather sell this Braille Sense to someone that would get more use out of it, and let's be real, it would be nice to get some money out of it to help pay the rent. The Braille Sense is a very powerful notetaker, boasting several traits that make it ideal for either the blind working professional or student. It has an eight-dot Perkins keyboard, (the most quiet physical Perkins keyboard I have ever encountered), a 32-cell Braille display with cursor-routing buttons, speech output, a mini LCD display for visual output, and also a VGA port for connecting to an external monitor. It also has three USB host ports, one USB client port for connecting to a computer, 32 gigs of internal memory as well as an SD card slot, WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity, and a built-in GPS receiver. It can also be used as a Braille display in conjunction with a PC or Mac computer, and Android or IOS devices. The system has a number of useful apps, such as a word processor, calculator, web browser, email client, media player, and others. For further info, visit its home website at: https://hims-inc.com/products/braille-sense-u2/ As mentioned above, I've owned this device for about three quarters of a year, and have only used it a handful of occasions during that time. Therefore, the Sense is in like new working order in all aspects. I would be shipping it along with its carrying case, charger, and a USB cable for connecting to a computer. The original selling price for this unit is $5595, so I think an asking price of $2600 is not unreasonable. That is less than half the price for a like new device, so keep that in mind when making inquiries about it. If interested, please contact me by sending an email to berberi.albano66@gmail.com. Payment via PayPal would be ideal, though I can also accept a check if necessary. Shipping is on me, unless the buyer lives outside the United States. Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Albano.

Brand new in box Tissot Silen-T Vibrating Watches. Include free two year warranty

We have acquired a small collection of new old stock Tissot Silen-T Vibrating watches from the factory. These are the very rare and hard to find watches that were made by Tissot for the visually impaired and works by the use of a touch screen face and by vibrations to tell you what time it is. This is the best quality watch ever made for the visually impaired. It has a sapphire crystal which next to diamond is the hardest mineral in the world. The watch is waterproof and is as beautiful as it is functional. It includes an alarm function and also will vibrate to tell you when the battery is getting low. These watches are no longer being made and haven't been made for many years now. We were able to acquire a batch that the factory never sold so they come straight from the factory and the factory packaging with original box, manuals, plastic covering all stainless steel parts so to not get scratched, and even includes the original audio manual on CD that they gave out for the visually impaired whenever one of these was purchased. There is even Braille on one side of the CD to tell you what the CD is. Also included is a free two year warranty with every watch sold. We have both the stainless steel bracelet band model with black face and the black leather strap with black face and stainless bezel and accents. Both bands are the safety variety and do not fully separate so to keep the watch from falling off your wrist if the clasp happens to deploy while out and about. You can see these beautiful timepieces on our web site here: http://www.harboltcompany.com/Rare-and-Hard-to-Find-Items-Gently-Used-or-New/ When sold new, these retailed for around $600 and that was almost 8 or 9 years ago. Today, this watch would sell for upwards to around $1000. All watches come with original price tags on them as well as in their original box with watch pillow, extra links for the bracelet model, and a nice travel bag. The leather band model can be adjusted yourself but the bracelet band model will need to be taken to a jeweler to have links removed. A huge selling point to these watches is that we are able to offer a free two year warranty on watches that are almost 9 years old. You don't find that every day. Stainless steel bracelet band with black face is $399 plus shipping and the black leather band with black face is $389 plus shipping. Feel free to contact us at sales@harboltcompany.com or405-633-2572 with any questions. We also offer a layaway plan that will work for anyone. Our web site is http://www.harboltcompany.com I will put some general info about the watch below. Click here to listen to the audio description Includes free two year warranty for all watches. Tissot, the 'Innovators by Tradition', has been pioneering craftsmanship and innovation since its foundation in 1853. The company has had its home in the Swiss watch making town of Le Loche in the Jura mountains but now has its presence in over 150 countries. The Tissot innovation leadership is enabled by the development of high-tech products, special materials, and advanced functionality. The Tissot company has been involved with high profile sports events since 1974 when they sponsored a racing car in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, France. Since then, Tissot's timepieces have been chosen as official timekeepers for world championships in cycling, motorcycling, fencing and ice hockey. Also Tissot is currently the official watch and timekeeper of NASCAR. Stainless steel case, Stainless steel snap-down caseback, Stainless steel bezel, Black dial, Alarm feature, Silvertone luminescent hands, Silvertone Arabic numerals, , lock down clasp, black leather band, Sapphire crystal, Push/pull crown, Swiss quartz movement, Water resistant to 3 ATM/30 meters/100 feet, Silent-T Alarm, Sapphire Crystal with 12 touch-sensitive areas. A vision of style and sophistication, we think you are going to be an instant fan of the Tissot T-Touch Silen-T Watch. This exceptional timepiece begins with a round 39mm stainless steel case with a fixed stainless steel bezel and a textured crown. These elements surround a bold black dial, which is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with 12 touch-sensitive areas and features white index hour markers with two Arabic hour markers at the 6 and 12 'o clock position. The luminous silver-toned hands are powered by Swiss quartz movement. This watch also has an alarm function, while a lock down clasp ensures its secure placement. Finally, this watch boasts water resistance up to 99 feet (30 meters). Truly a must-have for your watch collection As part of the Touch Collection, this watch is another revolutionary timepiece, being the first ever watch to provide the time through silent vibrations. This is a must have for both busy business men who are required to be discrete while needing to stay on time in the meetings as well as the sight-impaired people for whom this is the perfect timepiece as you won’t even have to look at it. Everything is done through touch and feeling. This collection promises good vibrations and state-of-the-art precision. Brand new in box with original price tags, plastic covering the stainless parts so they don't get scratched, manuals, and manual on audio CD for the visually impaired.
