Reid My Mind radio – LowViz Guide Indoor Navigation

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

I’m excited to have an opportunity to use the product featured in this latest piece for Gatewave RadioLowViz Guide, Indoor Navigation. If you’re not familiar, well think GPS indoors. Have you ever been to a large conference center, stadium event, or even department store and just wish you had directional information at your fingertips? Now imagine you are visually impaired. This obviously adds an additional challenge to finding your way around an unfamiliar venue. Take a listen and pay close attention…we have a sponsor. I think you’ll recognize the voice. Hope you enjoy!

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Telephone technology in its basic form hasn’t really changed since its inception. Two people speak to one another on each end of the line. Of course we have wireless phones, cell phones and internet based phones, but the basic idea is still the same…two people speak with one another. Ultratec, a technology company changed this when they introduced the CapTel phone opening this communication to those with hearing loss. What about those with both hearing and vision loss? Ultratec has just introduced the Braille CapTel.

Listen below and help spread the word about this device that can really present improved communication possibilities for an entire community.
