[access-uk] Re: FW: Re: Braille display options

i think it is a great pity that a company the size of sight and sound chooses not to employ fulltime a blind person in such a role! this calls into question your commitment to employing blind people in my view! very poor indeed!

Actually we do have a blind person to demonstrate, train and support our customer base. We have Jonathan Tyrer, who works UK wide for us in this role. He is not a full time employee, but he works for us on a day to day basis and has been successful. He has a very wide experience base - not just Freedom products, but all software and hardware and also more recently Apple solutions.

This for me is what we are all about, looking after our customer base, so if you would like to learn more about the Focus 40 Blue just contact us and we will do our best to help.

Regards
Glenn

They don't have a blind person like myself to go out and demo, train and
support their Braille products as it currently stands and, in my honest
experience, there is nobody like a Braillist to really demonstrate what a
display or other similar hardware can do.

Ask Sight & Sound Catherine. Sight & Sound are aware that it does not work with the N97 Mini as I told them. Also informed Freedom Scientific. Maybe
it has to do with N97 Mini being a 5th generation phone but it works well
with the other phones.  Don't Sight & Sound have a service, well they did
when Jackie worked there, where someone would come out and show you a
Braille display, in that case, the person could try it with our phone and
then you would know before purchasing it.  There is a really nice man at
Freedom Scientific who uses the Focus Blue all the time with his phone.  I
wrote to him too re the drivers but whether they do anything about it or not
is anyone's guess.  While I was disappointed, I have to say of course that
the Focus Blue is excellent in conjunction with PC also.

Ah.  Did you ask the manufacturer about this?  Is there a particular
reason why it doesn't work with the n97 mini?  Is there any way of
knowing before purchase whether it would work or not.  I will have to
ask Sight And Sound about it, but presumably if it didn't work I could
return it for a refund.

Hi,

My BrailleNote PK died recently and I decided it wasn't worth the
price to fix it, it needing a new memory board.  So I am tentatively
looking at braille display options.  I need either to be able to
write notes on the braille display, or for the display to work with
my Nokia
E5 mobile phone running Talks.  Having used an 18 cell display for
some time now I know I would not want to go below that.

Am I right in thinking that the Focus 40 blue, at £1995 from Sight
And Sound, would be the cheapest option?

Catherine
