Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Justin.  I just wrote them, 
describing my experience this morning when I woke with a low blood 
sugar and couldn't read the meter results at all because of the visual 
problems I sometimes have when I have a low blood sugar.  I also told 
them of my blind and elderly diabetic friends.  Being able to put 
something on your ear by feel, and not needing to put blood on a strip, 
would certainly be a big advantage for a blind person.
