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.
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.
I have been using a HumanWare Trekker Breeze since August 2010 and it's the best aid I have along with my cane. I think of my Breeze as a friend and a helper so I would really like to let people know what a huge difference the Breeze can make to their independence and freedom.
I'm loving my new Sendero GPS product running on the Apex. Whether in virtual or GPS mode, the software makes it a pleasure to use. I love the information that is available at my fingertips (literally) whenever I am out walking or traveling. The occasional announcements of passing POIs and the change of street announcements makes it easy for me to walk around. The QT version of the Apex allows me one keystroke commands for the common functions whenever I need that information on the fly like address or distance to the nearest cross street.
Just, wow! I've upgraded to firmware version 4.3 and I'm very impressed! HumanWare just keeps getting better and better!
