MacVoices #17098: Road to Macstock – Dr. Robert Carter On How Braille and Technology Intersect

Our next stop on the Road to Macstock takes us to Dr. Robert Carter, who provides some perspective on how blind users interact with their technology. Modern devices have opened up many things to those with visual challenges, but the costs associated with those devices can be challenging. Robert discusses how he will be making us all aware of these challenges and opportunities in his Macstock session this year.
