Does anyone know if the newer versions of jaws will open and read pdf
documents?  I am not able to do it with jaws 8.0.

Have you ever thought of having a 1 page braille display that cost about 600
dollars? My goal here is to try and have a company called ESense trying
incorporate this new technology in to the IPad or even an IPhone. Here is
the link to the article.

I've sent an email to apple accessibility regarding this too. Here are the 2
emails I've contacted. I encourage you to do the same.

accessibility at apple.com
and
info at senseg.com

Take care all.

There is a project here at North Carolina State University, headed by
a member of our local NFB group, developing a full-page refreshable
Braille display using, I believe, hydro power? Dr. Y, the inventor,
says they'll have one cell ready in about three years and then it'll
be no time at all before they have a full-page disaplay. I don't
remember how much they said it would be, but it's going to be around
4-6 or more years before it is out. Personally, from what Dr. Y has
told us, it will be well worth that wait!

Does anyone have a link to the information about this project? I
couldn't seem to find it. Justin, Brice, Shawn?
