My Personal Path to Independence By smartin on July 4, 2015 in eqb Considering my independence I realize I owe a lot to two companies, The Seeing Eye and Freedom Scientific. These videos were taken thirty years apart. Gary Matoon with two students NBC evening news, July 4, 1985. The author in the JAWS 20th Anniversary Video JAWS for Windows 20th Anniversary video. Thanks Seeing Eye and Freedom Scientific.
