BrailleNote Touch
The BrailleNote Touch allows you to enter braille on the touch screen, guided by HumanWare's patent-pending TouchBraille calibration system, which intelligently determines where your fingers are onscreen, and which dot combinations you're trying to make with them. The BrailleNote Touch is 10 inches wide, with braille cells in front, and a 7-inch touchscreen behind the cells. To the left and right of the 7-inch screen are additional touch-sensitive areas available for braille input. If you would rather enter braille with traditional keys, put the notetaker in the included Smart Case, which is topped by buttons that activate the touch surface, when used to enter braille. Like HumanWare's other braille devices, the BrailleNote Touch uses a version of the KeySoft operating environment. Though familiar, the new KeySoft has been rewritten to support the advanced features of the new device. The device features two USB ports, an SD card slot, and HDMI port. There's an 8 MP camera, and a pair of stereo speakers. 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver provide connectivity, and the device also includes an accelerometer. HumanWare touts the fact that the BrailleNote Touch is Google Play certified, which means its specifications match those of standard Google-approved tablets.
