Hello Lance and welcome to the list.  Thanks for the kind words about
the Kurzweil podcast.  It is the Kurzweil 2500Xs.  Of course, now they
have come out with the 2600, but there are not all that many changes of
note.  Well, there are some, but it's basically much the same in terms
of how one deals with the menus.  I don't know of a braille menu.  I had
to simply do what you did and learn it on my own.  I used to use a
techniques kn2000.  A very nice keyboard.  Again, welcome to the list.

Hello Everyone, 

My name is Lance Kamaka.  I was born and raised on the island of Oahu.
Honolulu Hawaii.  I'm totally blind from birth, and have a great passion
for music.  I play the piano and sing at a restaurant/bar three nights a
week.  I've subscribed to the blind cool tech podcast, and I really
enjoy it.  So much so, that I've decided a couple of days ago, to
subscribe to the mailing list.  I especially like those podcasts dealing
with audio, digital recorders, even the audio games.  The one podcast
that's my all time favorite is the one on the Kurtzweil keyboard.  Which
brings me to my question for Neal.  What model number is your Kurzweil
keyboard, and is there a manual in Braille for it?  I currently own a
technics kn1400 keyboard.  Learned to use it by rote.  I love the
onboard sequencer.  One of these days, I just might do a podcast on this
keyboard.  Anyways, you all keep up the great work.  Aloha, Lance
