The DC Night Out blog and podcast now has a recording of much of the BITS
(Blind Information Technology Specialists) Assistive Technology Vendor Show
Case which took place at the Jacksonville ACB (American Council Of The
Blind) convention on Sunday July 9th.  The showcase is a meeting in which
leading assistive technology companies make 5-10 minute presentations about
their products and/or what is new.  You will likely find both familiar and
new companies as you peruse the 2006 showcase of 18 vendors.  The vendors
also describe special promotions available during the consumer conventions.

The show entry also has links to the 18 web sites of each of the presenting
