With another school year ending, and with new chapters for many of our readership beginning, you, your children, or your students may be faced with the unsettling reality of having to return the BrailleNote that you've been faithfully using. A BrailleNote that belongs to an educational institution who must retain ownership of it. To that end, Flying Blind, LLC is ecstatic to offer deeply discounted 'School's Out' summer pricing on Brand New BrailleNote Apex 32 and 18 Cell Notetakers with additional accessories to accompany you on the next steps of your adaptive technology journey. That's right! Brand new, never-been-used, for thousands of dollars off of their suggested list price! Not only do these prices include shipping within the 48 Continental United states, but we're also offering each of our customers a complimentary Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus valued at $99.00 USD, as well as an Executive Products Leather Carrying Case, saving you close to an additional $250.000 USD off of this already ridiculously low price! It's simply the best cyber deal out there! For the past 17 years the BrailleNote name has been synonymous with excellence and innovation, and the Apex continues to set standards that other notetakers have yet to meet. This exceptionally priced gem will give you the time in your life to have the time of your life; providing the gift of Braille as one technology chapter closes and a new one begins.

Greetings,

1) In a short week for news, the first several items concern NVDA. As expected, the second new version for 2017 is now available, NVDA 2017.2. It brings full support for audio ducking in the Windows 10 Creators Update; fixes for several selection issues in browse mode, including problems with select all; significant improvements in Microsoft Edge support; and improvements on the web such as indication of elements marked as current (using aria-current):

2) NVDACon 2017 is now history, and recordings of many of its presentations are available:

http://bit.ly/2rSsZcg

3) Finally, an NVDA user has written a short tutorial to assist Window-Eyes users who might wish to begin using NVDA now that Window-Eyes development is ending:

4) The earlier guide on switching from JAWS to NVDA is still being maintained and edited:

5) Meanwhile, a major advancement has been made in JAWS development with the implementation of visual tracking on the web, so that a sighted user can now see where a blind user is browsing on a page. Hear about it in FSCast #140:

6) That podcast also mentions the release of ZoomText Fusion, bringing the most popular screen magnifier and screen reader together for users with a variety of magnification and screen reader needs:

7) Sendero seeks input to a survey that will supposedly contribute to the design of a user friendly and effective indoor wayfinding application. Responders can enter for a chance to receive a non-subscription license for Seeing Eye GPS:

8) Be My Eyes remains a useful and free iOS App. This listing of ways people use it gave me a couple of ideas:

9) iHabilitation Canada has published an online multi-media course for either learning or teaching the iPhone:
