An independent engineering evaluation was conducted of the Optical to Tactile Converter (Optacon), a reading aid for the blind which senses the contrast of printed text and coverts the information into a tactile presentation. The manufacturer's reply to the evaluation gives a general impression of the report, responds to specific suggestions for improvement, and makes recommendations for additional research. This document includes the manufacturer's letter of response, and it lists the reactions to each of the recommendations made in the various chapters of the evaluation report. (EMH)
