The use of Braille Note takers revolutionized many aspects of my life, and brought Braille back in to my world in a new way. For myself, one of the most thrilling concepts about me and my BrailleNote is the idea that the Braille world, which I thought I had lost has come back alive, and will always be part of me, how I work, and who I am. The BrailleNote allows me to be competitive, and still keep using Braille to eternity. I am looking forward to exploring many more uses I have still not touched upon for my BrailleNote. Some day, should I need to get an iPhone; the good part will be that I’ll be able to use it with my BrailleNote.

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.
I love my Victor Reader Stream, I think that it is a given for all of us fortunate enough to have one. I use it for all the usual stuff talking books, music dvs movies and text documents etc. It does help me stay organized and always handy for a note. This brings me to the most cherished success stories I have thus far using the Victor Reader Stream.
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 was working with an early elementary student. Like all young students her dexterity, finger isolation and strength was weak. She spent more energy trying to push down the keys on a Perkins than focusing on her braille symbols as she wrote words and sentences. This is a very bright little girl. To see her labor over mechanics while she was ready to burst into braille was frustrating. I knew about the MountBatten and had seen it at conference. I took a mini class and I was sold. I purchased two as we had another student who was struggling. The difference was immediate. She moved over the keys easily. Because she no longer has to keep "pushing those keys down" she writes pages which is also contributing to putting a story together, sequencing, and using more punctuation. Problem solving along with using her imagination also are increased. No more heavy sighs over brailling. I cannot say enough about this. One of our best purchases!
