[access-uk] Re: Upgrading notetaker

Actually I didn't but my concern relates to the supportability of the product which is why I said that if support was important there was probably only two choices. Personally I think The BrailleSence is a great product but worry about how quickly hardware issues can be responded to within the UK. I hope I'm wrong and that they can be because if thats the case then the BrailleSence is a great product for consideration.

Mike as everyone says all have there advantages and disadvantages.
If you are concerned about UK support then effectively there are only two choices the BrailleNote or PacMate. Then apart from the obvious stuff like how you like the ergonomics of each product its down to what you want to do and what input method you want and the support each option gives in these regards.
Very happy to chat off list if you want

Hi Mike,

Well I reckon there are pros and cons to all of them from reading
about them, though I've only actually seen two and used one.
Personally I use a BrailleNote and am very happy with it despite its
problems.  But I think whatever you do you should have a thorough look
at any unit before you buy, and preferably look at a few different
ones.  Also ask users what they like/don't like about what they're
using.  e.g. the BN has some annoying problems coping with some Word
documents (note I say "some" but so far I haven't figured out/noted
anyone else saying, a rule for figuring out which ones the BN will
have a problem with and which it won't).  The BN has other pros and
cons too and if you want to know more please write to me privately at

Hi listers,

I'm looking to upgrade my Braille Lite to one of the new notetakers.
Which one to go for is the question: Braillenote, Pacmate Omni,
Braillesense, or any other? I appreciate that there are personal
opinions and sales views. Are there advantages of one over another, or
is it very much a personal preference?

Any thoughts welcome,

Regards,

Mike
