Back by popular demand is a renewed grant to offer Typio talking typing teacher for $10.  Retail cost is $100. Great for newer computer users, students, and those who do not have full command of the keyboard.

Please share with consumers, consumer organizations, service providers, parent groups, and colleagues.
Don't delay, price returns to $185 on October 1.

In other news, CFTB partnered with two organizations this past summer to provide a total of 52 laptops to students participating in assistive technology camps.
We are now able to expand this to more camps in 2020.  We may be able to find funding for the computers through the Delta Gamma Foundation if planning begins this fall.   For more information contact chouseholter at computersfortheblind.org<mailto:chouseholter at computersfortheblind.org>
