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.
