I am just so happy with the Prodigi! I’ve shown it to other people here, and they can’t believe how sharp the text is to read with that Diamond Edge. And they are simply amazed when I put it into speech mode and it talks to me. I even put my iPad under it to magnify it, because the iPad’s magnification is limited. I am going to the Veterans Administration soon for an eye exam, and I will be taking my Prodigi Tablet to show them. I love my Prodigi.

What is so neat is I can go to my local library which has a public wireless network, and just use it to either download and read Bookshare titles, or search for internet radio stations.
This product is allowing me to complete a Doctoral Degree in History. Due to the compact size of the reader and strong battery life I can read / study anywhere as easily as a sighted person can read a book.
I find the Brailliant BI Display from Humanware a lovely reading experience. The braille cells are crisp and unlike some other displays they don’t have that plastic squeaky feel when you glide your fingers over them. As well, I love how the display is constructed mostly of aluminium and therefore is quite durable and yet surprisingly lightweight to carry around. Another feature that makes the Brailliant such a joy to use, is the signature thumb keys. Your thumbs just fall on them naturally as you are reading with your fingers on the display, allowing your fingers to stay on the cells while you pan back and forth with your thumbs. I enjoy this feature on my BrailleNote Apex and I’m so glad it’s been incorporated into the Brailliant line as well.
I clip the Stream on my belt, plug in the head set and dance away. Now for the real success: I have the cue sheets recorded several weeks before the new dances will be introduced in class so that when the time comes, I'm up to speed immediately. I'm not the best dancer, but I'm the oldest and certainly the only blind clogger. I jokingly call myself "the world's oldest blind clogger". I love dancing with Victor.
