Simon in Brazil

Amidst all the release preparation it can be helpful to reflect why we're actually working on all of this.

Because of that, I want to share an email about a project of the Federal University of Pará, Brazil that I received just a couple of days ago:
The project began in January, 2012 with the goal of deploying SimonBR in public schools in Castanhal, a city located in the state of Pará, Brazil.
The idea is to enable students with physical disabilities to use the computer to perform basic tasks such as listening to music, view photos, access the Internet, email, etc.
And here is a demonstration video of what they have built:

 

Please help us test the next version of Simon and report any bugs that you find on our bug tracker to make sure that projects like that will become more common in the future!

Excellent news, I look forward to the day the project truly gains some kind of "critical mass"!
