Publication Date: June/July 2000
Article discussing how BrailleNote provides a link between several useful functions, including word processing, mathematical calculations, and information management needs. The BrailleNote's keyboard and display create a comfortable environment for people who are blind or have low vision, as the keyboard is ergonomically spaced and located well above the Braille display. The Braille display features responsive cursor routing buttons for instant editing, and four thumb keys are included to allow navigation when reading from the Braille display. The BrailleNote is built upon a Windows CE operating system, which provides many advantages, including the ability to import a Microsoft Word document from a personal computer to the BrailleNote. A program called KeySoft is included, and it includes voice output programs such as a word processor, address book, Web browser, scientific calculator, and a planner.
