Maybe you can get some free technology.

The STEP-HEAR system is an orientation and mobility device based on radio frequency (RF) technology and is comprised of two units: a transmitter/base and a small receiver/activator. Installed at strategic locations, the base sends out a continuous signal. When the activator, held by the user, is within the range of the base, it vibrates and beeps. Pressing a button on the activator will trigger a pre-recorded voice message from the base. This helps the user to obtain information and become oriented toward the location, be it an office, an elevator or a bus. The system can be used virtually anywhere: government and municipal buildings, post offices, schools and universities, museums, conferences and exhibitions, hospitals, nursing homes, banks, ATM machines, stores, hotels, transportation vehicles, recreational places, and more. Designed with universal recognition, activators can be used anywhere in the world.

For more information on obtaining the system or getting it into your community, contact:

       Texas Center for the Physically Impaired and Refurbished Computers

For 15 years, the Texas Center for the Physically Impaired has operated a program where, for a $100 donation, they will provide individuals who are blind or visually impaired within the US or Canada with a computer. The computer is a refurbished unit that includes keyboard, mouse, sound card, monitor and speakers. They use Windows XP machines that businesses donate. The computer also includes a demo version of the Window-Eyes screen reader and a demo of the ZoomText screen magnification software. If a recipient can use ZoomText, the person is able to get a licensed version for free from TCPI thanks to the generosity of Ai Squared. Also included is a seven-tape tutorial on how to use the computer. For more information, visit or call 214-340-6328.

J D Lewis Wildlife Prints: A Unique Vision of Nature <>

Posted: 17 Mar 2009 09:52 AM PDT

From the website:

"Hello. My name is John Lewis, owner of JD Lewis Wildlife Prints. Once a dedicated wildlife artist and graphic designer, I have long since set aside my paint brush to pursue other career ventures. My decision to leave the art world was largely influenced by a blinding eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa, or (RP). Today, I have lost roughly 95% of my vision, therefore, I am no longer producing new artwork. However, during the 1980s, I was blessed with enough central vision and self-discipline to enable me to produce a number of original detailed wildlife drawings and paintings. At this time, I am offering a superior quality Giclees reproduction of my wildlife art and I am confident that you will love your print and will enjoy it for many years to come!"

Every time someone buys a JD Lewis wildlife print, 5% of that sale will be donated to The Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB). Donations to FFB will help increase the funding that drives the research, which will lead to cures and treatments for retinal degenerative diseases, such as retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration and the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases. Exciting advances have been realized in the areas of development of an artificial retina, gene therapy, retinal cell transplantation and pharmaceutical treatments.
