 From John G. Paré Jr.

Dear Colleagues:

I am writing to you to ask your help in 
recognizing one of the most important inventors 
of our time.  Blind Bargains.com is conducting 
the voting round for its second annual Access 
Technology Awards.  Ray Kurzweil and the 
knfbReader Mobile have been nominated in three 
different categories.  We, the blind users of 
access technology, have the opportunity to tell 
the world how much we appreciate and honor Ray Kurzweil and his inventions.

Please support Ray Kurzweil by voting in favor of 
the nominations for his newest and most exciting 
product and for Ray Kurzweil himself.  Here are 
the particulars:   You can submit your vote by 

Only one vote in each category by each person is 
permitted.  So, don't vote several times as your 
ballots will not be counted.  Voting ends at 5:00 
p.m. Eastern time on January 25, 2009.

The knfbReader Mobile is nominated in two 
categories: Category 1, Best New Product or 
Innovation, and Category 5, Best Software 
Product.  Ray Kurzweil has been nominated in 
Category 11 for Person of the Year.

There are many worthy nominations this year, but 
I think you will agree that the work of Ray 
Kurzweil has had a tremendous impact on the life 
of each and every blind person not only in the 
United States, but throughout the 
world.   Working with the National Federation of 
the Blind, Ray Kurzweil created the first truly pocket-sized reading machine.

Please join me in supporting this technology that 
was created and produced side by side with the 
organized blind.  Please visit 
and cast your votes before 5:00 p.m. Eastern time this Sunday.

Thank you in advance for your help.

John G. Paré Jr.
Executive Director for Strategic Initiatives
