Right, we need to act as soon as we can if we want to make an impact  
by disability awareness day. According to a bank statement that just  
arrived today, we currently have $1,602.96 in our account. I'm all for  
helping out with this, we just need to decide how many we can  
reasonabily afford to buy.

>> Baltimore, Maryland and Libertyville, Illinois (September 14, 2009):
>> The National Federation of the Blind, the nation's oldest and largest
>> organization of blind people and the leading advocate for making
>> mainstream devices accessible to the blind, and Motorola Inc., a
>> leading manufacturer of cell phones and other mobile communications
>> devices, announced today that they have entered into a cooperation
>> agreement to promote technologies that improve the accessibility of
>> cell phones to blind consumers.
>>
>>
>>
>> Certain future Motorola cell phones will provide verbal readouts of
>> information such as the time and date, battery level, signal
>> strength, user's phone number, caller ID information for incoming
>> calls, missed and received calls, and voice mail alerts.  Blind users
>> will also be able to take advantage of verbal readouts and
>> voice-command features for ring tone status, inputting and accessing
>> contacts, and various other settings.  Motorola expects these cell
>> phones to be available in 2010.  The parties have also agreed to work
>> together to make additional phones and features accessible to blind  
>> users.
>>
>>
>>
>> Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the National Federation of the Blind,
>> said: "In an age where productivity and success increasingly depend
>> on access to mobile technology such as cellular telephones, it is
>> critical that blind Americans have equal access to today's cell
>> phones through user interfaces that do not require vision.  The
>> National Federation of the Blind appreciates Motorola's commitment to
>> making the features of its cell phone products accessible to blind
>> users without the need for third-party software, and we look forward
>> to working together with Motorola to make future improvements to the
>> accessibility of telecommunication technology."
