Optelec Tieman Group Logo Whether the needs are for on-the-go portability, viewing street signs, storing class notes, reviewing important documents, reading the morning newspaper or sharing information the Optelec FarView puts freedom and independence in the palms of the user.

Vista, CA, November 28, 2008 -- Optelec, the world leader in innovative and assistive technology for visually impaired and blind people, announced the release of FarView, a portable and powerful magnification solution that redefines how low vision users are able to access, store, review and share information.

The unique design of the Optelec FarView and incomparable functionality of near and distance viewing sets a new standard for other portable and desktop devices currently on the market.

Using a centralized, auto focus camera and six different viewing modes the FarView allows the user to view from a distance as well as up close. Viewing notes on the board, reading the menu at coffee shops, and traveling independently has never been easier!

The FarView enables the user to store the data for up close review in more detail at any time. Capture a complete document or multiple pages of a book or magazine. Up to 100 images can be stored on the device and accessed at any given moment. Stored images can be adjusted to the users needs via an integrated menu. Ergonomic scrolling buttons help the user to navigate through any document easily and comfortably, with an auto-scroll function which brings the user back to the beginning of the text line within a snap. Adjust images and text to the needs of the user though rotation, picture alignment, contrast and brightness settings.

Also, FarView offers the user flexibility to connect to an external monitor or PC, encouraging the user to access printed text and photos comfortably and efficiently, and share this information with colleagues, friends and family.

"We are ecstatic to be bringing a product such as FarView to an industry thirsting for innovation," states Michiel van Schaik, CEO of Optelec Holding B.V. "We at Optelec are 100% committed to combining the intelligence within a product with a flexible, powerful design in order for the consumers of our products to exponentially receive more functionality for the money that they spend."

Whether the needs are for on-the-go portability, viewing street signs, storing class notes, reviewing important documents, reading the morning newspaper or sharing information the Optelec FarView puts freedom and independence in the palms of the user.

Optelec expects to be delivering FarView to users in January, 2009. Contact your local Optelec distributor or sales office for more information and pricing details.

Blind Judo Foundation Logo While this news article does not have anything to do with Flying Blind, LLC’s involvement in Adaptive Technology, it does concern an organization that Flying Blind, LLC wholeheartedly endorses and supports.
 
For those of you who do not know the personal side of Larry Lewis, I am a huge fan of, and practitioner in the Martial Arts, which are a fantastic way for those of us who are blind to build confidence, stay physically fit, and maintain a balance in our lives.
 
The Blind Judo Foundation at http://www.blindjudofoundation.org is a wonderful vehicle for bringing the Martial Art of Judo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judo) to persons who are blind.
 
I received this news about one of its sponsored athletes and felt compelled to share it with you:
 
Jordan Mouton, a BJF Judo athlete, has won the opportunity to represent America at the upcoming Paralympic Judo Games in Beijing. This young, 18 year old female came to the Blind Judo Foundation approximately two years ago expressing interest in the sport of Judo.
 
Through dedication, desire, and unrelenting commitment, she will be representing America this coming September in Beijing. As a visually impaired athlete, she will be only the second female to represent America in Paralympic Judo since the Paralympic Games were initiated in 1988.
 
While home in Houston for a few days and before returning to her Dojo in CA, Fox News caught up with her. The following is the trailer of that interview:

Baum Retec AG Logo It is my privilege to announce that I will be assisting Baum Retec with a number of efforts at this year’s ATIA Conference, to be held Wednesday, January 30th through Saturday, February 2nd, 2008.
 
BAUM Retec is a German company and industry leader specializing in the development, manufacturing, and sales of products and services for persons who are blind and visually impaired.

Visit us in Booth NR. 121 where Baum will be collecting your names and e-mail addresses and conducting a drawing for its 12 Cell VarioConnect (BrailleConnect), the industry’s smallest Wireless Braille Display that interfaces with a number of accessible, mobile solutions.
 
I will be assisting Baum in its booth throughout the conference, and would be most pleased to spend some time with you demonstrating Baum’s line of Wireless Braille Products. I’ll also be formally presenting Baum’s Wireless Braille product line in my presentation:
 
TITLED: "A Step Beyond Notetakers: Wireless Braille Solutions in Action!"
WHEN: Thursday, January 31st from 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
WHERE: Room: Curacao 4
 
KEY POINTS:

  • Discuss alternative strategies for independent task completion beyond the scope of a traditional notetaker.

  •  
  • Gain an understanding of how refreshable Braille increases a user’s efficiency when completing a specific task.
