Brad Dunzey ,

Incredibly innovative and helpful

Plenty more here than helpful information how to use the most innovative technology for blind individuals. Explorers willingly share wisdom and insights in so many areas. Plus, using AIRA with other technologies. Gold mine of a helpful community.

HawkEye2015 ,

Can all the presenters borrow the hosts microphone? She has better audio than the the CEO!

The host has better audio than everyone else, the producer doesn’t have good audio. You pay enough for the service that you would expect them to be able to afford half decent microphones. They have to use a microphone for the computer but only cost around $100. the CEO should have some thing, and so should everybody representing the company. You have people listening that I have hearing problems, it seems like you’d want to provide the best audio possible. Stop lining your pockets and get a better microphone set up for everybody.

impeccable savagery ,

They don’t really listen to Feedback

The service would be better if half the agents on call for a retarded. I don’t know how they’re I think some of these stupid people become agents.
