Hi everyone,

A few times every year, a group of users of the BrailleNote 
family of notetakers get together to talk about topics related to 
the BrailleNote.  We discuss topics discussed on the BrailleNote 
list serve, suggestions for future KeySoft upgrades, the status 
of the BrailleNote in comparison to its competition, including 
other notetakers and accessible mainstream technology, issues 
users are having with their BrailleNotes, etc.  For a long time, 
only users who had a PC, a sound card, and a microphone could 
participate in our chats.  However, the Web site development team 
for the BrailleNote Users Web site has found a way to solve this 
problem.  Now, starting with the 10th BrailleNote chat, which 
will be held on April 14, BrailleNote users who don't have a PC 
can participate in the chats using their phones! We will be using 
the Conversation Station phone chat line for this purpose.  The 
10th BrailleNote Chat will be held tomorrow, April 14.  Here are 
the times for each session.

First Session, using Conversation Station phone chat line: 2 PM 
Eastern, 1 PM Central, 12 PM Mountain, 11 PM Pacific
Second Session, using the Blind Cool Tech chat room at 
www.blindcooltech.com for the PC: 8 PM Eastern, 7 PM Central, 6 
PM Mountain, 5 PM Pacific.

If you would like to join us for the Conversation Station session 
of the chat, these are the instructions to get into our chat 

1.  Shortly before the meeting is scheduled to start, call

5.  You will hear a welcome greeting from me about the 
BrailleNote chat room.  After this greeting, you are asked to say 
your name after the beep.  Say your name after the beep and press 
pound.  You are now in the room.


1.  To mute and unmute your phone at any time during the chat, 
press star 1.
2.  To exit the room at the end of the call, press 0.
3.  Be aware that this call will be recorded for posting on the 
BrailleNote Users Web site and on the Conversation Station's 
recorded calls listing.

We look forward to hearing from as many BrailleNote users as 
possible during this BrailleNote chat! All users are welcome, 
regardless of your experience with the BrailleNote! Anyone 
interested in the BrailleNote who is not a user is also welcome! 
I hope to see you there!
