The Social Application of Technology

Caught the founder of Bookshare.org and an associated company called benetech on C_Span over the weekend
Has a mission to get books in the hands of the disabled and others all over the world.

This was of special interest to me as we are helping a cousin who has recently lost her vision (diabetic related) to use the "Talking Book" program from the Braille Institute and the Federation of The Blind through the local library.

Benetech sounds like an additional and exspansive resource. The website says in part

Books can now be ordered in embossed Braille, through a new partnership with Braille Institute of America. Whether you choose a book for yourself or mailed as a gift, there is no need to be a member to order. Find out more about ordering embossed Braille books.

What a joy to see such service in an ever increasing bad spin on the business sector.
