I have to agree.  Blinded veterans in the US are definitely looking a simple
solutions and the Veterans Administration does not care what it cost as long
as it is simple.  

Take care,

Being, "in the business" so to speak, Johnnie, I can confirm
that the main market these days for standalone reading
systems are the elderly who have no desire to get into
computing.  Certainly that is very much the case here in the
U.K.

They just want a simple device, with as few buttons as
possible, to read a book, or some letters and such like.
Sure it's expensive, but then again it's a low volume
product my comparison to main stream devices.

It has a place, and it will sell - quite well.

George.

Well, it's a sooped up cd player because for a lot less
money, if you have a pc, you can get what you need to do
your scanning and ocr and guess what, you can already play
cds on your pc.

It's much more than a souped-up CD player, it scans and
reads.  How
accurately remains to be seen.  Has accuracy improved in the
last five
years?  I'm also interested in Pulse Data's ScanaR.  Anyone
use that?  Beth
