Device demonstration: Breakthrough technology teaches mathematics in Braille

September 18, 2002

Sally Mangold, Ph.D., a renowned Braille educator with over 30 years of teaching experience, will demonstrate the latest developments for the Speech Assisted Learning (SAL) system at the National Science Foundation (NSF) on September 26.

With SAL - an electronic tutor Mangold developed - children can study Braille with only occasional support from an instructor and adults can use the device for programmed instruction. At the demonstration, Dr. Mangold will discuss the device's successes and introduce its new mathematics tutor and Spanish-language capability.

Who: Dr. Sally Mangold of Exceptional Teaching Aids, Castro
Valley, California

What: Demonstration: Speech Assisted Learning Braille Tutor

When: Thursday, September 26, 2002 at 10 a.m.

Where: Room 110, National Science Foundation,
4201 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, Va.
(Ballston Metro stop)

National Science Foundation
