Why I love my BrailleNote Touch and it is so beneficial in my education.
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!
I have a pretty active social life and like to travel a lot and often fly or take Amtrak trains alone. This would not be possible without my little Brailliant Braille display. Since I am deaf and cannot hear to talk on the phone and am also blind and cannot see to read texts, this is my only way of communicating with anyone. I not only use text messaging to communicate with family and friends but also use it to communicate with my employer, to "call in sick", to schedule appointments with doctors, to ask my guide dog school questions, and to check my credit card and checking accounts and the weather. It also allows me to access the web where I can shop for my groceries, dog food, Braille embosser paper, labeling tape and more. And last but not least, my Brailliant gives me 24/7 access to a favorite pastime: reading. I love to read!
