Research info needed.In early days-(60's) there was an effort to develop
Blind/Deaf Blind Amateur Radio RTTY and computer output utilizing assistive
technology with braille output. There were also efforts for computer output
Please respond OFFLIST so we do not clog the reflector.
We are seeking more information,materials, and stories (This is a history
project for SMECC Communications and Computation Museum)
Note I have checked google and other things ALREADY! - I
HAVE NOT checked some of the online but restricted access
database of publications that may bot be indexed in google so if
something looks really great drop it to us.
We are primarily looking for material and stories from
the 60's and 70s - But before ok! (If there was any?)
and after... yes if during the early development phases
We have the following questions:
- Aside from Ray Morrison, who else was working on this?
- Anyone here work with Ray on this or have photos of gear and paperwork?
- Although we have some of Ray Morrison's articles, we are looking for
other letters, documents hardware, memories of use etc.
- ` Are there any Blind / Deaf Blind RTTY or computer users here today
that participated in this effort?
- Are there any Blind/Deaf Blind CURRENT participants Amateur Radio
RTTY or other digital modes with assistive technology producing braille
- Anyone use Lee Brody's Deaf Blind Communication terminal hand have a
recounting of it or still have an example of the hardware?
- Looking for Computer output devices and information, photos, stories
etc, by any developer or user from the 60's and 70s primarily but later
material will go into the archives on this subject as well. Nowadays there are
plenty of things, but way back then... not so much!
- Feel free to send me anything you think I should know related to the
above topics that I may not have hinted on, but you think I need.
Thanks in Advance -
