----- Original Message ----- From: "News Wire" <listservice@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>To: <boacosta@xxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, August 11, 2010 1:44 PMSubject: Accessible World Tek Talk presents An Audio Demonstration of a newHD Radio, August 16, 2010 Newswire: To his many fans, he is known as the Jazz Man, so you know Steve Bauer is qualified to demonstrate and discuss the new accessible HD radio produced by Dice Electronics. Until now, HD radios have been a disappointment, leaving purchasers with a severe case of buyer's remorse instead of the improved accessibility they hoped for. On August 16, Steve will demonstrate an HD radio that is truly accessible for the blind. If your experience with HD radio has left you disenchanted, or if you love radio and have always been curious about it and would like to learn more, he will renew your enthusiasm and leave you eager to own this one as quickly as you can. After his audio demonstration and description, Steve will welcome questions from you. What is HD radio? How does it work? Are there particular concerns you should consider before buying? What difference will HD radio make in your world of sound? These and all other questions will be welcome. This is a presentation you can't miss. A physical description of the radio and its features appears below: On Monday August 16, 2010, Steve Bauer will address the Tek Talk audience to discuss the new fully accessible AM, FM, and HD radio from Dice Electronics. Based on the popular DICE iTR-100 tabletop HD Radio, this unit was designed with special consideration for the visually impaired. Practical voice prompts and audible feedback have been added which makes operating the iTR-100 simple and intuitive. Each button press is followed by an audio queue to help guide the user through actions such as station browsing or setting up the alarm clock. All buttons and knobs are arranged and spaced apart with ease of use in mind. The compact size of the unit makes it easy to enjoy the enhanced noise-free sound quality of HD Radio or RRS (Radio Reading Service) at home or in your office. Register the radio's serial number with a local Radio Reading Service provider to access the RRS HD content.
