After almost six years of development, National Braille Press is unveiling the B2G, a “portable, Android-based refreshable braille computer and optional smart phone.” Priced at $2,495, this 20-cell Braille notetaker runs on Android’s Jellybean operating system, and sports some 32 apps. With access to the Google Play store, it is possible to install many more apps on the device.

In this audio, JJ speaks with Brian McDonald of National Braille Press about the B2G, and puts it through its paces.

Many are heralding this year’s CSUN convention as the year of Braille. With the release of the B2G, National Braille Press is doing their part to make that a reality.
