I've always liked keeping up with the latest news. I like to know what is going on in the world. up until the last few years, I listened to radio and sometimes tv news but could not read news articles too easily. Someone would have to read them to me. I would have to ask them to read an article and would not necessary know which articles were available to me. But, now with my I device, internet, and braille display, I can read articles from all over with ease. I can pick what to read, I can read using synthetic speech or braille, and I can read it now or later. It has really increased my freedom of information which is very important to me.
