Subject: Accessible World Tek Talk presents An Audio Demonstration of a new
HD Radio, August 16, 2010


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

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.
