The Raised Dot Computing Newsletters

Raised Dot Computing of Lewisburg PA and Madison WI developed early braille translation programs. These programs had to work with a broad range of blindness devices. These newsletters are a rich source of material about the blindness field between 1993-1994.

If you are interested in more material from the vaults of RDC, please e-mail David Holladay at david@duxsys.com. If there is enough interest, he is working on a CD-ROM with all the newsletters, all the manuals, all the old Apple software, and some emulator software so they can be run from your PC.

The Raised Dot Computing Newsletter were an important information vehicle in the early years of Raised Dot Computing. They covered a very broad range of subjects.

We invite you to look at the complete collection of Newsletters. Until recently, these were a stack of 5.25 inch of Apple II floppy disks. Now they are easily manipulated HTML files.
