Hello Braillist,

A huge thank you if you were one of the many people who came to meet the Braillists and try Bristol Braille's Canute prototype at the Sight Village exhibition. If you couldn’t make it to Birmingham this week, we’ll be on the road again this autumn.
 
You are cordially invited to the next Braillists' meeting in Bristol on Monday 20th July. You’ll get the insider's guide to the world of Braille transcription from Jenni Fortescue and Matthew Horspool who work in commercial and educational transcription respectively. Plus, you will get the very latest Canute Braille ebook reader news direct from Ed Rogers, Director of Bristol Braille Technology. Meet fellow Braillists in the Watershed Cafe-Bar as usual from 5.30pm and head in to the meeting at 6:15. You can find full details on the Braillists events page
http://braillists.org/event/bristol-braillists-braille-transcription/ We hope to see you there - please let us know if you are coming along.
 
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Canute home testing programme. Your feedback has been invaluable for the Bristol Braille team who are hard at work on the mark 7 prototype.
 
The mark 6 Canutes were demonstrated and tested around the UK including Bristol, Reading, London, Hereford, Worcester and Birmingham. One of the prototypes is now winging its way to Dublin, where you can meet the Braillists in September.

There will be another round of Canute home testing later this year. Stay tuned for further announcements.
 
With so much interest in the Braillists at Sight Village we are keen to start more groups around the country. If you are interested in running a group please let us know.
You can contact the Braillists any time from our website (http://braillists.org) plus find out about events and join the discussion forum. You can also connect with us on twitter @Braillists.

Best regards,



Steph
