The Prodigi arrived this morning and all is well with no damages and it took only a few minutes to unpack and set up.
The initial wizard is really very worthwhile and makes the unit usable almost immediately.
I love the reader aspect so much and can now access my bank statements and letters which I have had trouble doing with my Sense View due to eye fatigue and the lack of resolution it has plus movement makes
I am so enthusiastic about this unit I am going back to printed books instead of audio books,well for a try out but it may be a bit tedious to do.
Right now, I could not be happier with my unit and trust me when I say this is giving me a freedom to deal with text I had given up on.
I have yet to take the tablet out into shopping and look forward to being able to sort out infuriating things like spice bottles, pasta types and even margarine.
I think this is the best investment I have made in myself besides 6 eye surgeries and 2 laser treatments that mean I can still use Prodigi and do so with clarity.
I am sure sighted people underestimate the critical importance of clear text and the Diamond Text is a superb feature that allows me to cope with text again.
If you need a video testimonial of my new found joy let me know and I will produce something for you.
Thanks for your help and advice though I rather suspect I was on the right path in the first place when I discovered Prodigi.
Hope you get what this means to me and my appreciation for the designers and engineers - developers in making a superb low vision product that actually does what it says on the tin.

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 have used the Braillenote for taking notes during Church, reading the songs that we sing during Church, taking notes at different conventions, reading the Bible, and reading books for enjoyment. Also, having the Braillenote requires me to practice my Braille, since I did not learn Braille as a youngster, I need to keep practicing the skill so that I do not lose it. The Voicenote and Braillenote both have made improved my life tremendously.
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.
Just, wow! I've upgraded to firmware version 4.3 and I'm very impressed! HumanWare just keeps getting better and better!
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.
