Two new braille products are available, or will soon be, from APH, those being the Mantis Q40(tm) and the Chameleon 20(tm). How do these products fit in our lives? Whether you are a professional, a student or just needing a braille device for home and leisure, come and find out if these devices might meet your needs. Come and learn more and get your questions answered directly from the team that lead the effort for both products. How do these displays compare to other offerings in the market and where might they be going in the future?

    Join the Main Menu Live team and others for a lively discussion.
