A Boston University group of students has developed a short survey to be distributed to you concerning the development of a refreshable Braille display.

They are developing a project and need as many responses as they can get by Monday.

I have pasted it into this email for your convenience.

Please complete and return the survey to

Thanks for your help. I think that it is encouraging and important to support any efforts to develop technology that blind people can use.

The survey is after my signature.

2. In the past year, how many books have you read?


3. In the past year, how much have you spent on books?
