Accessibility Anywhere Based Braille Displays sign now

We, the undersigned, who are Braille display users, friends and family of Braille display users, and teachers of the blind,

*: Believe that accessibility to information for the blind on a par with their sighted piers is a right.

*: Believe that due to this right, and due to the cost of Braille displays, accessing Braille through the use of Braille displays should not be limited by the type of screen reading solution used by the blind.

*: Strongly request that all manufacturers of Braille displays cease basing the drivers of their Braille displays off of particular screen reader drivers, but rather base all Braille display drivers off of the Human User Interface Protocol, which can be found on all Windows computers.

*: This will allow true portability and equal access to information for the blind, as they will be able to use their display with any computer. This will create greater competition in the market for the best Braille display to stand out, grant greater literacy in Braille through greater access to electronic Braille books and other materials, and support the right of all blind people to have accessibility anywhere.

    Using a Braille display has greatly increased my motivation to learn about the workings of the PC and Windows, which I found much more frustrating when I had to rely on speech. It seems, all too often, Braille access has been an afterthought in screenread

    I believe that making brail reading devices universally accessible from a standard program on all computers should be dun. At this time blind computer users cant move into the 64 bit platform because the makers of brail devices do not want to update the d

    I don't currently use a braille display but hope to some day. My feelings are that in the job market the less that has to be done to make things more accessible the more likely that the blind and visually impaired will be employed. If a blind person can u
