IDEAL at NCR and Intacta Technologies, Inc. Demonstrate New Accessibility Technology:
Companies to Explore Uses for Persons with Disabilities

Atlanta, GA, September 21, 2000, (OTCBB: ITAC)

Intacta Technologies, Inc. and IDEAL at NCR announced today the demonstration of a new application of Intacta.Code(tm) technology. The demonstration was given at a press conference held by President Clinton as part of his Digital Divide initiative visit to The Disability Network, a Flint Michigan-based non-profit organization that supports persons with disabilities. The demonstration showed that the technology can provide persons with print disabilities electronic access to any printed document. During the demonstration, a purposely damaged and crumpled paper, printed with Intacta.Code, was scanned into a computer creating a screen-readable version of a 218 page book entitled, "Equality of Opportunity: The Making of the Americans with Disabilities Act."

"We are investigating how this technology can serve the print disabled community," said Steve Jacobs, President of IDEAL at NCR. "Being able to achieve a 200:1 ASCII to Intacta.Code page scanning ratio is incredible."

Benefits for Everyone

Intacta.Code’s compatibility with legacy systems facilitates a solution that unlike expensive OCR systems, is highly affordable, simple to use and effective.

This technology provides an economical way for publishers of newspapers, magazines, books, or direct mail to now reach any visually impaired reader.

"While the primary use of our technology is in the publishing, supply chain and pervasive computing environments, we are hopeful that it will prove useful by improving the accessibility to printed materials by persons with print disabilities," said Noel Bambrough, Chief Operating Officer of Intacta Technologies.
