WE WILL DEMONSTRATE HOW A BANK OF INFORMATION CAN BE ASSEMBLED, ESSENTIAL INFORMATION CONCERNING SPECIFIC CATEGORIES OF DEVICES PUT ON A SERIES OF TELEPHONE TAPES, AND MADE AVAILABLE AT NO COST TO INDIVIDUALS (ELDERLY, HANDICAPPED, PROFESSIONAL PERSONS, FAMILY, FRIENDS, ETC.) AND TO INSTITUTIONS FOR A MODEST FEE. THE SERVICE WILL BE THE "PRODUCT" AND WE WILL DESCRIBE ITS POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPEAL TO PROVIDER ORGANIZATIONS WHO WILL BE PRIVILIGED TO INCLUDE A SPONSOR'S MESSAGE WITH EACH TAPE.
