[access-uk] Re: Is the Opticon dead?

Hi Ray

I am only aware of two Optacon-type print readers which were discussed on
the ACB Radio Main Menu program at the end of 2002.

One reader is called p2rd which uses a standard digital camera connected to
a control unit.  The image from the camera is cnverted into synthetic
speech.

The website is:

www.catechnology.net

The other is more akin to the Optacon.  It has a camera which is connected
to a control unit which has a tactile array similar to the Optacon.  This
one is called videotim.

The website is:

www.abtim.com

Hope this helps.

I seem to recall someone, maybe on this list, saying that someone
was reserecting the Opticon.  Does anyone know anything about
this?  Maybe its not called 'Opticon' now as there seem other
products out there with that name, and maybe its been trademarked
by now.
