In confronting my blindness, the one thing I wanted to do was stay in my same junior high school with my same friends and lead my normal life. The BrailleNote and Oratio have been instrumental in allowing me to stay on that path. I use the BrailleNote in all my classes and I have been able to maintain a near straight “A” report card over the past year. I have a hope that any child that is blind will be able to use a BrailleNote to help them advance in school and become a productive adult. In addition, my social life has not missed a step either in part to HumanWare's Oratio. You can probably imagine how important text messaging is to kids these days and having Oratio on my Blackberry has been a God send.

“I am fortunate to have been in possession of a Prodigi Duo for the past three weeks and I am now wondering how I managed before I had this amazing device!
The base sits easily on my desk space alongside my laptop and large monitor and it is here I use Prodigi to magnify paperwork and particularly numbers which I have progressively had problems with differentiating. I work with figures so this is for me quite incredible.
The short tuition one to one session with Tony Wu the Prodigi representative who came to my residence and unpacked and assembled the device was excellent. Tony was very clear and precise in his instruction and along with the User Guide and Quick reference sheet I was at once able to commence using Prodigi and find my way around with no hesitation at all.
Over the past three weeks I have explored the various modes that best work for me and am comfortable with using the machine base for the most part in Live Mode and easily magnifying as required for the respective documents.
The Prodigi tablet is what is most amazing, it is lightweight and portable and I am using it constantly around the house for all manner of little jobs, particularly in the kitchen to magnify instruction labels on jars, cans and packaging, read recipes, see the temperature controls on my oven and I even reach into the back of deep cupboards, capture a shot and am then able to see what I have there without having to physically take it all out!
The best of all is that I can sit in a cafe with a latte and read the newspaper and magazines rather than only barely able to check out the headlines and pretty pictures...too tempting not to be doing my accounting work at home!
Thank you Prodigi”
My wife’s order for the Stratus player was completed yesterday when it arrived the day after placing the order. She is delighted with the product and service. Many thanks.
Many other businesses could learn from your example. Excellent products ; excellent service (with employees that are helpful attentive and with a caring attitude) ; excellent support; excellent web site . How many other companies could live up to this model ? Alas, too few! HumanWare deserves to prosper and given our experience, I’d be very surprised if it did not.
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.

Congratulations on the new Stream software. I thought the NFB-Newsline was cool. This latest release with the Internet is amazing. I love that it was so intuitive to figure out. I didn't read my notes and just figured it out easily.
For over 25 years, HumanWare's inspirational vision has resulted in a range of highly intuitive and intelligent solutions that empower people who are blind or with low vision by giving them the independence to participate effectively within a sighted world.
