KEYSOFT 7.5 BUILD 31 BOOKSHARE UPDATE NOW RELEASED

[This announcement is displayed in text only for accessibility with
Braille Notetakers. A web version is available at:
http://www.humanware.com/en-usa/about_us/press_releases/2009_press_releases/keysoft_75_build_31_bookshare_update_now_released]

Longueuil, Quebec, March 18 2009 -- KeySoft 7.5, Build 31 for the
BrailleNote mPower, BrailleNote Classic and BrailleNote PK has been
released today.

In January 2009 Bookshare updated their web site offering members a
number of benefits including a change from their proprietary
decompression technology, (the unpack tool), to the industry standard
unzip technology.  This change temporarily interrupted access to
Bookshare books using the BrailleNote family of products.  From
Bookshare member feedback and comments we recognized the importance
of this access and are releasing this free update that fixes the
ability to download and unzip books to current users of KeySoft 7.5.

For users of the BrailleNote PK and Classic we have also taken the
opportunity to correct the error associated with scheduling an
appointment, and the failure in some circumstances to retain words
added to the spelling dictionary that were corrected for mPower users
in Build 29.  For PK users the long term issue of sometimes losing
speech has been identified and corrected.

Please read the file "Release Note for KeySoft 7.5 Build 31" for
further tips on using the Bookshare site with your BrailleNote.

We encourage existing KeySoft 7.5 users to take advantage of this
important Bookshare access update as the Development Team finalizes
the release of KeySoft 8.0.
