I think John mentioned last week that we were hoping to have some news
on the Penfriend laundry labels at Sight Village.  Unfortunately the
four different samples of labels might be good enough for the defence
industry, but they were literally a wash out for us.  So, we're back to
the drawing board, but it's still top of our list of projects.  

We always get asked what's new this year at Sight Village.  We have some
dedicated Sight Village webpages where you can get a full list of
products on display <http://rnib.org.uk/sightvillage> .  We are also
hosting a number of seminar sessions, and you can find out more about
them on the webpages too.  There will even be a bit of cake at the 11.00
session, but we're not telling too many people about that!

This year we have some space dedicated to Apple products, so for those
who haven't managed to get their hands on the new iPad and other Apple
goodies, then come along and have a play!  

Improving accessibility - for the first time we're trialling the use of
RNIB's PenFriend so you can find out for yourself what's located on each

We've also included an audio booth which we're hoping will help address
some of the noise issues that some of us have at these big events. It
will provide an opportunity to sit down at a sound box with a talking or
audio product to hear it for yourself without the noise from the crowd.

For those who manage to get there, it would be great to have your
feedback on what works (or doesn't).

Hope to see you next week.
