Hello Braillist,

A quick reminder of Saturday's meeting in Reading. We'll be looking at the latest prototype of Bristol Braille Technology's Canute multi-line Braille ebook reader and talking to the team about how they developed it and where it is heading. Full details on the event page (see below).

We have a stand at Sight Village in Birmingham on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th July. We will be accompanied by Bristol Braille Technology who will be demonstrating the Canute. Do come and say hello if you are attending, it would be great to meet you.

We are preparing a draft constitution for the Braillists and would love to get your feedback. We will be discussing it on the forum so if you haven't subscribed to it (separate sign-up to this newsletter) simply send a blank email to braillists+subscribe@googlegroups.com and you'll receive the discussion directly in your inbox.

Apologies for the incorrect date of the next Bristol Braillists on the last mail out. It will be on the evening of Monday 20th July. See below for a link to the event page with full details.
