[vip_students] Re: Jaws dongle!

Tony this is very interesting indeed.  Now I know of Sight and Sound
Technologies but interestingly I had always thought of Blazie Engineering
who are representatives for Freedom Scientific being the main suppliers of
Jaws.  I contacted them, Blazie re the Braille Blazer, a Freedom Scientific
product only to learn of Sight and Sound also selling Jaws.  I will have to
contact Sight and Sound re this Dongle.  I only got to know of the Dongle
through the guy at Blazie.  Never made an inquiry about the price so I have
that shock to come yet.  That was great infkormation Paul passed on to me/us
this morning.
