One of this year’s newest companies to CSUN turned out to be the most talked about. Thomas Simpson from Neo Access Ltd. discusses all the features and benefits on their new NeoBraille Notetaker. One of its biggest highlights, the ability to pop in a Sim card and use 4G speeds through the AT&T network was making everyone take a second look.
One of the most anticipated releases this year was HumanWare’s BrailleNote Touch.
This device may look like your traditional note taker with a Perkins style keyboard and Braille display, but lift the cover on the top and out slides a slick looking tablet with either an 18 or 32 cell Braille display that uses the screen as a virtual BrailleTouch interface. Mike Tindell demonstrates this revolutionary device and shows us all the new innovations in HumanWare’s latest note taker.
Dave Wilkinson from Hims Inc. talks about their latest HD video magnifier the GoVision, which proves that you don’t have to give up screen size for portability. Dave also discusses some upcoming updates for owners of current Hims products and the creation of the HimsTastic political party, so make sure to take a listen.
