Braille Voyager and Supernova Combine to Make a Winning Package

Braille Voyager and Supernova Combine to Make a Winning Package











(PRWEB) June 3, 2004

In the interest of extending the companies’ longstanding relationship throughout the European market into the United States, Dolphin Computer Access Inc., has teamed with Optelec, the North American division of the Tieman Group, to offer blind and visually impaired computer users fantastic deals on the Voyager series of Braille displays.

From June 1 through September 30, 2004, Optelec is offering either the Braille Voyager 44 or 70 cell Braille display complete with Dolphin’s Supernova reader magnifier for the one-off price of $ 4,995 for the 44 cell model and $ 9,295 for the 70 cell model, saving customers over 15% off each product’s suggested list prices. The package combines the industry’s most innovative Braille display with the world’s only combined screen reader and magnifier, in a single package. Magnification, speech or Braille—or all three? This package gives the PC user endless choices; so whatever the visual condition, this winning combination is all one needs to effectively integrate screenreading access and PC usage in educational settings, the workplace, or from the comfort of one’s home.

“The best hardware device requires the best software partner, and Optelec’s found such a partner in Dolphin Computer Access”, stated Larry Lewis, Optelec’s Vice President of Blindness Sales. “The Voyager series with Supernova Version 6 is the perfect combination for all market segments. We wanted to create a stellar package that would be robust, stable, reliable and useful—offering incomparable functionality with the best financial deal for the customer. Supernova is the only software to date that allows users to select between a screen reader, a screen magnifier and Braille output in a single installation. Supernova 6.0 gives to those of us who are blind a superior alternative to any other screenreader currently on the market. This software combined with our Voyager Braille display means that blind computer users now have more intuitive options for accessing and controlling their PCs through a Braille display with industry standard Windows functionality effortlessly and efficiently.”

Dan Moore, Vice President of Sales for Dolphin, said, “This is an excellent opportunity for both our organizations to make a real difference to the lives of blind computer users by providing a high quality, complete package at a great price. The beauty of Supernova is that it can be networked or run from a server and is the only screen reader that comes with support for Windows terminal server and Citrix Metaframe environments for students who must use a campus-wide network or employees who must interact with a company network. This is a great deal for blind computer users, saving them nearly $ 1400 compared to purchasing the products individually.”
