If you used the refreshabraille, you would never even need to touch the screen on an iphone...it can all be done through the tiny display. I believe the point is, if you want to be really portable, an iphone and refreshabraille display will let you go anywhere and do just about anything, connect to the internet, do email, etc and put it in a small purse....that easy, that portable

>Hi Fellow Educators and blind 
>Below is my opinion about note 
taking. To my knowledge the ipad and  the iphone do not have many apps for 
blind users. It's true that aph rerreshabraille costs $1,800 with 18 cells. But 
Freedom Scientific sells a braille display that can be connected to the 
computer, but you would need to ask about connecting the braille display for hte 
iphone for $1,3395 with 20 cells of refreshable braille. Regarding purchasing a 
note taker or using a braille display with the iphone is a personal choice. I do 
not have the desire to use an iphone since the voiceover feature andand the need 
to tap to use the  touch screen do 
not appeal to me. I also use my note taker for personal and  professional use and prefer to store 
information in braille rather than in prprint. Freedom Scientific has great 
technical support and I do not see the need for me to get a Iphone or Ipad. I am 
ok using a computer with a braille display attached to write up professional 
documents and a note taker to store confidential information on in braille. Each 
person has different needs, so one option does not fit each person's needs.
