On Monday May 13, 2013, the Bureau of Special Education and the New Hampshire Accessible Instructional Materials (NHAIM) in collaboration with the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) provided a free Blind Training Opportunity. Maria Delgardo of APH assisted by Diana Petschauer and Stephen Yeradi from NHAIM demonstrated to parents, vision teachers, special educators and regular education staff the Refreshable Braille 18 features and specific applications to use in education and introduced the Refreshable Braille Plus 18 and its new features. Participants learned about the similarities and differences between the devices and were encouraged to use the NHAIM products available to New Hampshire students on the APH Count to experience this hands-on collaborative training. Refreshable Braille Plus 18, is a new APH mobile device that allows students and adults who are Braille users to read books, write class assignments, scan documents, search the web, keep track of appointments, find directions, record lectures, listen to podcasts, and run Android apps.
