Quantum Reading Learning Vision comes to ParraPals

Despite the miserable weather, about 55 members came along to our August monthly meeting.  Our guest speaker was Tim Connell at Quantum RLV, which sells and distributes equipment and software to make life easier for people with vision impairment.
Quantum RLV has been around for 25 years - it
Dolphin Easy Text software
used to be at Rydalmere and known as Quantum Technology but is now based at Thornleigh.
Tim demonstrated a range of products - optical magnifiers; hand held electronic magnifiers; text to speech equipment; and specialised software such as Dolphin EasyText.

When John announced morning tea, Tim was rushed by members wanting to look at the equipment and ask him questions.
But morning tea was worth waiting for too.  In the absence of Hazel G. and her sister Beryl, Lyndell managed the morning tea, with plenty of willing helpers.

The volunteer of the month was Bev Pieremont, one of our many willing buddies, catering assistant and office worker.  Congratulations Bev.
