Update: June 20, 2019 the Orbit Reader is available again through APH!

After months of ongoing negotiations between the Transforming Braille Group (of which APH is a member) and Orbit Research (the manufacturer of the Orbit Reader 20), American Printing House has removed the Orbit Reader 20 from its catalog and shopping site. This comes after discussions have stalled regarding the terms of distribution to TBG partners. 

For more information, go to Fred's Head blog.

Note: APH has partnered with Humanware; the Braille Trail Reader (similar to the Brailliant BI 14) will soon be available through APH on quota funds. Learn more about the BI 14 and the Braille Trail Reader here.
