Check Out The Latest and Greatest in Assistive Technology


My publisher passed along this information about an interesting presentation coming up in New York City. Sounds like it will be of interest to anyone who uses, works with or is interested in assistive technology.??

Suzanne Robitaille, author of The Illustrated Guide to Assistive Technology and Devices, will demonstrate some new cool technologies at the Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library, on Tuesday February 9th from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Library director Mark McCluski kick off the event, followed by Elizabeth Savage from Read How You Want.

Suzanne will then show folks the latest and greatest innovations in assistive technology including a Braille business card embosser, sign language videophone calls, iPhone apps, video game controllers and more.

The Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library, which features barrier-free architecture and houses browsing collections of Braille, recorded, and large-print books, is the perfect backdrop for Suzanne’s presentation. It’s located at 40 West 20th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues.

So make plans to attend this event. It’s free and it sounds like a great place to learn about the newest assistive technology innovations.
