Presentation Description

Since 1992, Dancing Dots has been the company that enables blind and low vision people to read music, to write their music down and to record their music independently in a variety of formats, including magnified print music, Braille music, standard print music and a variety of audio formats. The company also acts as an authorized dealer for a number of well-known manufacturers of assistive technology, including HIMS International, Electronic Brailler and Duxbury.

Dancing Dots founder, Bill McCann, will talk about his experience as a client of the rehab system who earned a degree in music and as a business owner who helps rehabilitation professionals and teachers of the visually impaired to guide serious music students to achieve their educational and vocational goals. He will demonstrate their accessible music solutions. He will also show the main features of related Braille products: BrailleSense U2 note-taker, Braille EDGE 40-cell Braille display and the Cosmo EBrailler personal Braille writer and quiet embosser.
