(St. Petersburg, FL - August 20, 2014)

Freedom Scientific announces membership in the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®.

As the worldwide leader in assistive technology, Freedom Scientific recognizes the value of collaborating with CEA and its membership community to work towards a common goal of providing equal access to blind and low vision consumers.

“Technology will continue to play an increasingly important role in the development of solutions for our customers, and we intend to be engaged and conversant as the leader in our industry,” said John Blake, President and CEO of Freedom Scientific.  “We recognize the value of collaborating with this association and its many offerings.”

The CEA is most commonly known for producing the annual International CES® in Las Vegas, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology.  

“We are happy to welcome Freedom Scientific to CEA and look forward to facilitating their participation in a variety of CEA member opportunities, from industry promotions and division initiatives to our industry events like our upcoming Innovate and 2015 CES,” said Ellen Savage, senior director of membership, CEA. “Freedom Scientific's mission aligns closely with that of the CEA Foundation and we look forward to their input there as well as across many CEA member-focused programs.”
