In this interview, J.J. speaks with Larry Skutchan, Director of Technology Product Research at The American Printing House for the Blind (APH.) JJ and Larry talk about APH's new Orbit Reader 20 Braille display which should sell for around $500 when it is released later this year. APH is also partnering with Freedom Scientific to provide students with a copy of Jaws at no cost during their school years. Larry also spills the beans on a possible forthcoming 40-cell braille display. This is a wide-ranging interview, with many topics covered.
