[gps-talkusers] Re: Some questions about the new version

I read that the braille note pk will be able to work to a phone providing an
wireless internet connection via bluetooth and use the internet browser in
the braille note pk  which is supposed have speech.  I do not read braille!
I do not thinkk that the voice note can do this.
