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.
Mother absolutely LOVES her Prodigi! It's truly given her a new lease on life. She easily moves back and forth from read mode to live; reading newspaper obits, recipe cards, mail (although the machine doesn't read cursive, so letters are out unless they're printed), etc. Pictures are still a bit harder for her to see, but we're working on collecting her some better pictures. There are simply no words that can truly express our gratitude for this wonderful machine. Giving mom back some of her independence has worked wonders in restoring a "purpose" for her life. I'll sign off with a cute story. I awoke early the morning after we had set up the prodigi for mom, looking for mom. She was not in her bed. I didn't find her in the bathroom. I was beginning to get concerned. Then I saw her in the corning of the living room, at the desk...on her prodigi. She was totally engrossed in reading!!! Basically, you've given my mom back her eyesight! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
