Review by Leana, USA
I really enjoy using my new braille note touch. I love using touch braille. I will admit it took me a little bit to get use to but now that I have the hang of it I love it. I am so glad and impressed with all the things I can do on the braille note touch. I don't even need to carry my laptop anymore. I was able to do so much that I can't even begin to explain. I am so glad I got the braille note touch and I can't wait to see where my journey with my new braille note takes me. My new braille note touch is my new best friend.
Why I love my BrailleNote Touch and it is so beneficial in my education
Review by Lilly C, Victoria
I love the fact that you can change accounts on email so easily so I can email from school account and my personal Gmail account.
I love how easy it is to connect to the internet, it is so much more user friendly and the fact that you can use YouTube is so amazing and beneficial because you can listen to videos and tutorials like the other kids. The BrailleNote enables me to record audio and take photos, I did not think I would use the camera but I have already used it for a maths assignment showing a graph I made.
Word Processor is great and the way to make subfolders is so easy. I can have my subject folders and documents all organised.
You can install apps so easily like a dictionary, and pdf reader. The pdf reader helps me show my work to my parent or teacher from my BrailleNote, via the touch screen.
Tablet mode is so amazing and both blind people and sighted people can use it to navigate through the Braillenote Touch. I can get help from non-braille users and share what I am doing in class.
Writing directly on the screen is challenging but it will be so good in years to come as I improve because it allows sighted people to see the screen while I work.
I’ve only been using the Braillenote touch for two months but I have learnt so much and can do so much more than I used to with the Apex!
We used the braillenote touch today in math
Review by Maureen Murphy Lewicki, NY, USA
We used the braillenote touch today in math. She converted it to a pdf and sent it to me via file manager and the gmail. Worked like a charm.
Thank you all for your efforts. I can appreciate all that goes into making these conversions happen, especially as a TVI who used to interline my student's tests with print!!
Thirty-one days have passed since the initial kickoff of the Braillenote Touch, and it has already strongly impacted those who have it or are considering getting it.
Review by Elk Grove - USA
Thirty-one days have passed since the initial kickoff of the Braillenote Touch, and it has already strongly impacted those who have it or are considering getting it. I’ve been using mine for eleven days, and I can already say that it is the new wave of the future for assistive braille devices. I've been a Braillenote user since 2006, going through an mPower and an Apex, and now the Touch. All three of these devices have positively impacted my productivity and on the go usage. They all have high quality braille and speech, the Apex could do Nemeth which will be carried over to the touch, and so much more! The Touch, however, will completely bridge the gap between assistive technology and mainstream technology. It has allowed me to use internet, email and calendars more efficiently, with instant synchronization. One of the most game-changing revolutions is TouchBraille! With my school using iPads, I will no longer be the only one click-clacking on the keyboard. This way I can type completely silently, while still just as efficient as using a keyboard. The keyboard cover is there when I need it, for example when using GPS outdoors while walking. While we're on the subject of typing, let's talk about documents. Particularly the ones written in the now mainstream word processor! It is incredibly liberating to be able to have perfect braille translation with mainstream formats, all on one device. Now, the days of pairing to a mobile device or computer are done, and the load of three devices, my computer, my iPad and my Apex has been brought down to one powerful device, the Braillenote Touch! On the subject of documents, I will be taking great advantage of the ability to utilize Google Docs. My school relies heavily on the cloud, particularly the Google Apps suite. Using an android based braille tablet, it is now extremely convenient to use Google Docs while retaining braille format. One of the most exciting software benefits is downloading third-party Android apps! It is liberating to have the same convenience of a notetaker, in one powerful mainstream braille tablet. Another benefit that bridges the gap between assistive technology and mainstream technology is the convenient way to disable Keysoft and have a sighted person use the tablet in case of a problem that would require a sighted person to use it. The upcoming OCR engine will be liberating, as I will be able to get printed materials accessible and read them, all on one powerful device. Last, but certainly not least, the HumanWare Care program and removable internal SD card are excellent ways to make sure that users aren't left without a Touch and user data should a repair to a damaged device have to be done. Overall, the Braillenote Touch has significantly impacted me, and it will only get better as updates come out. The extremely well-made, comprehensive audio tutorial that Kim Loftis from Mystic Access has provided is an excellent way to get to know the device, whether you have it or are considering it. Thank you HumanWare for making the first truly mainstream braille tablet!
