Thanks for the info. How does your son like Read2Go with theFocus display? I hear mixed reviews of Braille with Read2Go, so I'm interested in his opinion.

I can't speak for what is trending now but my son used a refreshable Braille display (the Focus 40) paired with an iPad. He downloads books primarily from Read2Go and outputs them in Braille on the Focus. We recently downloaded the KNFB reader and have experimented with that to create Braille output. It works pretty well... except when it doesn't. :)
I hope this helps!
