Braille made a huge splash at CSUN, and HumanWare’s latest BraileNote was right in the thick of things. In this extensive interview, J.J. speaks with Greg Stilson, Product Manager for HumanWare’s Blindness Products, who demonstrates the BrailleNote Touch, an Android-based assistant with Google apps and services in the background, but the familiar KeySoft commands in the foreground. The units will ship in May with the 32-cell unit selling for $5,495 and the 18-cel for $3,995. Check our previous post for more general information on the unit.

Great podcast as always. The braillenote Touch really sounds like an amazing device. I really can’t wait to play with this at NFB this summer. Thank you for producing such great podcasts. Keep up the great work.
