ALICE enhances experience at ATIA 2009

Softeq Development Corporation debuts ALICE, the Assistive Listening and Captioning Engine, at the Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) Conference in Orlando during the week of January 28 – 31, 2009. ATIA commemorated 10 years of serving as the collective voice of the Assistive Technology (AT) industry.

Softeq would like to thank the many 2009 conference attendees who stopped by for a live demonstration of ALICE running on the DURATEQ ATV (Assistive Technology Version) rugged handheld solution. Attendees had the opportunity to walk throughout the conference hall with a DURATEQ ATV handheld to sample the immersive experience ALICE provides to patrons at museums, theme parks and other related venues requiring audible or visible assistance. "The demo was very interesting and helpful! I can see how, as a blind person, this would be very useful," said Michael D. Barber, Technology Analyst at Iowa Department for the Blind and ATIA 2009 attendee.

Special thanks to David Dikter, ATIA Director, Caroline Van Howe, ATIA Program Director and Kristi Williamson and the rest of the ATIA staff for an outstanding event and for providing Softeq the opportunity to offer the DURATEQ ATV demo for all ATIA members and attendees.
