With the recent update, this reader is a sweet device. I had long dreamed of a Braille newspaper, and with the integration of Newsline into the unit with automatic sync, I have just that. I was kind of ho-hum on the device a month or two ago, but the update has been a game changer.

It may a be a good idea for all of us to ask other blind people here in the state if they know about this project. I find it interesting that the library was given 243 units for this project and they still have approximately 75 of them just taking up space on the shelf. If you talk to someone that might be interested but is afraid to try it let them know that there are several volunteers that would be more than happy to help them get started.
