Hi Adam and list.
Yes you are right. We don't have any maps here in New Zealand either which
is most infuriating. I believe I could get the GPS unit to attach to the
BrailleNote and add my own points of interest, but I really want to wait
until the basic maps are available first.
Oh by the way I joined the list about a week ago after listening to some
podcasts. I feel like I know people like Larry, Dana, Lynette and Adam
already and that's wierd since none of you even know I exist. I'm Paula from
New Zealand by the way. I have always done my equivalent of sound seeing
tours when I travel overseas, and have been an avid taper from way back.
I've not got into producing digital recordings yet but am learning heaps
from the list. I do have an Iriver T30 which I was hoping to use for the
purpose but as you know, it's not very user-friendly at all. In fact I find
it so frustrating that visually all the menus and everything are right there
and yet without a sighted person sitting beside me I am quite lost when it
comes to trying to record on the thing. I love the size and the quality when
I do get someone to help me get it started, but I just would love to be able
to read those menus. I wish I could somehow attach a little Braille display.
Anyway enough from me. I'm thoroughly enjoying the list and the podcasts
learning about people's lives and hearing all the different environments
visited. Keep them coming. Hopefully I'll soon have a New Zealand
