Presentation Description


Since 1992, Dancing Dots has been the company that enables blind and low
vision people to read music, to write their music down, and to record their
music independently in a variety of formats including magnified print music,
braille music, standard print music, and a variety of audio formats. The
company also acts as an authorized dealer for a number of well-known
manufacturers of assistive technology including HIMS international,
Electronic Brailler and Duxbury. 


Dancing Dots founder, Bill McCann, will talk about his experience as a
client of the rehab system who earned a degree in music and as a business
owner who helps rehabilitation professionals and teachers of the visually
impaired to guide serious music students to achieve their educational and
vocational goals. He will demonstrate their accessible music solutions. He
will also show the main features of related braille products: BrailleSense
U2 note-taker, Braille EDGE 40-cell braile display, and the Cosmo EBrailler
personal braille writer and quiet embosser.
