Thanks for sharing this video.  I have forwarded the link to a large number of IA's, designers, and developers within the Library on Monday. Since then I have received many positive responses. So often people think accessibility is someone else's problem. This video helps our team understand why it's so important to care so much about accessibility.

I am due to give a couple of workshops on accessibility and wanted to show those attending a refreshable Braille device. While there are many videos showing screen readers in use, I noticed there are very few showing Braille machines.
So Bruce Maguire kindly agreed to help out and I have made a 6 minute video of him describing how and why he uses a screen reader with refreshable Braille to access the web and he demonstrates in real time (apart from the time taken for search results to be found) how he finds a book on Amazon.
The video along with a transcript is on my blog at http://www.dingoaccess.com/accessibility/refreshable-braille-and-the-web/ 
Please feel free to use it if you think it will be helpful in spreading the word.
