For the Blind, an Operating System of Their OwnBy Williams, John M.; Business Week Online,
Publication Date: March 2000
Article discussing HumanWare's BrailleNote, a braille notetaker that coverts text into digital speech or Braille, and its use in opening e-mail attachments. When using BrailleNote, users who are blind or have low vision can send and receive e-mail attachments that can be opened in Microsoft Word, and then converted to text, digital voice, or Braille. BrailleNote is small enough to carry in a jacket pocket or purse, and it has a special display screen along the bottom of the screen, where words in Braille are displayed in 18 or 32-cell configurations. Within seconds of turning BrailleNote on, users can read documents in Grade One or Grade Two Braille.
