He continued stating,
'A natural evolution for an American institution: Recording for the Blind was founded in 1948, with a mission to provide equal access to the printed word. Decades later, we extended that mission to include access for people with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Now as Learning Ally, we position the organization to be even more inclusive, becoming a friend to people for whom access and reading are barriers to learning.
Students, parents and educators are already excited to see us providing them with access on mainstream technology like iPhones, iPads, MP3 players and home computers. Our future success will be grounded in a "user-focused" approach toward introducing new solutions and support services for specific populations of users, their parents and educators – very much including (but not limited to) recording for the blind, dyslexic and members with other needs.
