[access-uk] Re: Sales and support staff's knowledage of braille

Hi Christine,

I have a Braille Sense 32 plus and I have just found out that if I plug
a qwerty key board into it through a USB port, then some one can then
communicate with me by typing on the qwerty board and it will come up on
my  Braille display. This is going to be very useful for me when I am in
a noisy environment.

David Weston.

Yes Derik your right, Lucy Naismith was indeed the same lady who came
out to 
me. I didn't notice if she could read braille at all as I read what came
on 
the display, she operated the companion and we chatted to each-other,
her on 
the companion and myself on the mPower part of the DBC. I really enjoyed

that, though it was hard not to "Chatter" as I tapped! lol

There's so much more I want to learn, word processing, book reader, 
scientific calculator, copying and pasting and doing more than one thing
at 
a time, along with so much more, I'm doubtful one day will be sufficient
and 
my brains HD big enough to remember it all, but I'm certainly
enthusiastic 
as one day, too soon, I shan't be able to hear any more and this piece
of 
kit will be such a life-saver for me.  I have an emailing group for DBC 
users or people wanting to know more, exchange ideas etc...I hope you'll
get 
a DBC soon too, I think everyone who, like ourselves has no vision and a

severe hearing loss, should be encouraged and helped to obtain the DBC.

Regards, Christine.
