De-certification of Unilect DRE by PA State

Not sure if everyone has seen this already.

What is truely shameful is that a system with so many simple
operational and user interface flaws could have ever received
certification in the first place.

This just exposes how shallow the original certification testing
was.

The fact that this system cannot even pass the relatively few
requirements that PA is making here is truely astounding.

Compared to the rigour of the work OVC and OASIS are
conducting - this Unilect system sounds like a 6th grade
science class term project.

I wonder if this is going to have a downstream knock-on
effect.

Is this a golden opportunity to us to offer the effected
states and counties an alternative?
