Hello Braillist,

I'm very excited to announce a new Braillists meeting in Reading, Berkshire on Saturday 21st March from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. We will be joined by Ed Rogers from Bristol Braille Technology who will introduce and demonstrate the Canute Braille multi-line ebook reader prototype. We'll also be discussing the activities of the Braillists and the possibility of further regular meetings in and around Reading. The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in Braille and the development of tactile reading technologies. We've already had a lot of interest so If you would like to attend please let me know so that we can ensure there is enough space for everyone and I can send you full details when we have them confirmed. The venue will be in the centre of Reading close to the train and bus stations which I hope will make it accessible to people from the surrounding area as well as Oxford, West London and the M4 corridor.

Ed Rogers and I were interviewed by the delightful Stuart Lawler for the NCBI Technology Podcast when we were in Ireland for the Dublin Braillists meeting in January. Stuart is a fantastic advocate for Braille and assistive technologies and the podcasts are beautifully produced and well worth a listen. To hear us talk about the Braillists group and Canute Braille ebook reader check out the February podcast.

Best regards,



Steph
