Additionally, the Scholar is outdated technology. But then so is the BN 
to some extent.

Amber,
Braille Scolars are available through Quota Funds at no charge for the 
school. They are fine but they don't offer a tactual Braille display 
like the BrailleNotes do. I would go ahead and let them get the scolar 
but start telling them that she needs the BrailleNote because your 
daughter needs the braille display for editing. Scolars only have 
auditory feedback. When I was a TVI - I would start the BrailleNotes 
with students in the THIRD grade.

Hello everyone. I was wondering, Is a braille speak and scholar a good 
choice for a second grader who has little technology experience? They 
are getting her one soon. Is there something else that would be more 
appropriate for her? Thanks
