Dear Friends and Supporting Vendors

We also present Stocking Stuffers in order to thank our vendors who sell us their products and to give them an opportunity to discuss and demonstrate them. We shall always have questions from our wonderful audience. All times listed below are Eastern.


Accessible World cordially invites you to our first part of Stocking Stuffers on November 4, 2019. This is an opportunity for you to shop for all of the holidays you celebrate.

Stocking Stuffers 2019 welcomes Denise Russell of Speak to Me Catalog.

Established since 1994, Speak To Me Catalog has sought to offer a wide array of talking and musical products. We focus on gifts and novelties to help you celebrate those special events or occasions like birth announcements, birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. From the practical item like talking watches, clocks, calculators and electronics to wacky gifts like a toilet seat alarm, fun sound effect buttons and much more. Fun singing and talking teddies, educational toys for the little ones and religious gifts can be found as well as heard at our web site. It’s worth a visit to our blind-friendly designed web site or a call to check on that unusual gift for that special someone in your life. We always say at Speak To Me Catalog why not “Give the gift that says something.”

From November 4th to December 19th we are offering to our Stocking Stuffer friends free shipping on your first order (just mention that you heard about us on Stocking Stuffers).

Introduction by Myrna Votta

7:40-8:20 P.M.
My name is Roger Behm, president of Adaptive Information Systems Inc. I have been with this company since 1995 as an employee and then owner since October 2001. I am totally blind and have been working with low and high technology since the first TSI talking calculator in the late 1970’s. I mainly now carry HumanWare products, along with Duxbury software, En-Vision America talking bar code reader, EVIS the Guide software, and supply other accessories for products I carry. I am the largest Victor Reader dealer in the United States, according to my HumanWare regional rep and always my products I offer for less, because who doesn’t like to pay less than retail prices! I have the new BrailleNote Touch Plus only Android license device from HumanWare for less than retail and many times have great discounts on these devices along with used, but in great condition older note takers for sale. I also always have the Victor line of products for far less than retail and as many of you know I offer many free extras too, since I believe strongly in providing at no cost Braille documentation and labeling. I sell HumanWare’s 4 different Brailliant BI Braille displays and sell the Enabling Technologies and Index Braille embossers. The newest embossers now come with 3 years warranty and weigh under 20 pounds and emboss at 60 to 120 characters a minute single sided or interpoint! Lastly, I offer 24/7/365 free tech support and training by email or phone not only to my customers, but to others who do not know where to go for assistance. Give me a call and I will be glad to assist you.



We make technology accessible to the vision impaired and reading disabled.
