The BrailleNote Touch Plus has been amazing for me so far. It combines everything I do on all my devices into one. I am a high school student who studies maths and 2 languages, Italian and Spanish, so I really appreciate the maths capabilities of the device and the ability to be able to write in multiple languages.
BrailleNote Touch Plus 18 – Tablet and note taker
The perfect braille note taker to connect and engage with your world
The 18-cell revolutionary notetaker BrailleNote Touch Plus 18 combines the simplicity of a note-taking tool with the power of a smart digital device. Supported by the Android Oreo platform, it takes your braille experience to new levels and keeps you engaged and connected with your world.
What an incredible device! The audio online tutorials are incredible and are easily accessible for use in training on the uses of the device for our blind users, even at a young age. I have a 4th grade student who is using the device and the capabilities that this device has brought to her have opened a whole new world for her educationally, socially, and personally.
I am loving my Touch Plus! I purchased my own devise so I can learn and teach my students to use their devices. It is easy to use, and the added feature of the screen helps classroom teachers and other sighted people who are non-Braille users to access the information that students are writing.
It is no exaggeration for me to say that the BrailleNote Touch Plus enabled me to be successful in college, as well as employment. It is an amazing device! I love the thumb keys and how much I can do with it, everything from reading books to writing documents and browsing. I am very grateful to own my BrailleNote Touch Plus and I love it!
