  • 18. November 11, 2009 dear maning, we are two totally blind guys who are probably the first users of gps technology here in the philippines. we already travelled from commonwealth to binondo using our gps receivers and our talking cellphones and we arrived safely. that's why we would like to meet with you so we can ask technical info from you to improve our navigating. ... kindly honor our request because we would like also to be active contributors to what you are doing in mapping the philippines, well perhaps to start a new map department for blind travelers. i typed this letter using a screenreader with speech software, forgive the non capitalization of beginning letters so i can type fast to go with my flow of thought. god bless you and thank you in advance for your precious time with us. sincerely, dick
