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.
I've been able to edit HTML code efficiently. -- When I call Dell's tech support line, I'm able to read off my customer ID. -- During my last year in college, notetaking was more efficient. -- As the webmaster for the National Alliance of Blind Students, I often use the Braille Note's braille display to read notes I prepare prior to board meetings. -- Dialing phone numbers is more efficient.
Just, wow! I've upgraded to firmware version 4.3 and I'm very impressed! HumanWare just keeps getting better and better!
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 rely on a voice note Apex, having retired the Empower for a newer Humanware model. I am just as pleased with it as I was with the first device and plan to use it for many years to come. It is an intuitive little machine, lightweight, portable, and able to interface with my personal computer with improved software tools. What impresses me the most is the improvements in internet accessibility and the ergonomic wrist rest below the QUARTY keyboard. This design improvement allows my hand to rest upon it so I have less wrist fatigue when typing for extended periods of time. Thank you Humanware for providing this great machine so people like me can continue to lead independent, productive lives.
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.
