Flying Blind, LLC is pleased to announce that it will be conducting a free
webinar in conjunction with Aroga Technologies (http://www.aroga.com/) on
Friday, September 30th at 2:00 PM Eastern Time (EST). This presentation will
focus on the increasing use of Apple devices within the classroom and will
offer educators and service providers of persons who are vision impaired
strategies for incorporating Apple device usage within their clients'
educational and rehabilitation experience. Low cost, wireless, refreshable
Braille alternatives will be presented as a vehicle for transforming these
mainstream devices into modern, evolving alternatives to traditional
notetaking options.

Flying Blind, LLC's founder, Larry Lewis will share his experiences in
working with educators in utilizing these devices, and will demonstrate how
a variety of applications, when accessed by a low-cost refreshable Braille
alternative, can serve as a low-cost toolkit for independent task completion
by vision impaired users in both classroom and mobile settings. While this
webinar will be geared toward service providers who are faced with the
challenges of understanding and working with Apple devices, any vision
impaired Apple user or aspiring Apple user is welcome to participate in this
