Hi all,
     I was linked to this page via the Blind Bargains  email update.   I 
attended the official announcement of
the Blio reading system at last year's Washington Seminar and saw a fulll  
demo at the National Convention
in Dallas.  The scope of the system, touted as being available on all  
devices (mac, PC, smart phones, Ipod,
IPad, Android, etc.), capable of displaying full color illustrations, an  
included text-to-speech engine - or
use your preferred software: JAWS, Window Eyes, etc.), fully scalable  
display or text and illustration for 
those with partial vision and links to enable us to purchase any book was  
    According to the link below, things are not going  well.  I add that 
this link is a review of the Blio as it
was launched at the recent Computer Electronics Show.   I will  look into 
it and provide any further info I
can but in the meantime, does anyone have any further info?
