Wish I had the time to tinker like that. Seems the more technology is progressing, the more options people with disabilities have. I hope that the disability market will start changing with the times as well. It's nice to have options, isn't it? I used my sendero this weekend to find two different places and it seems that I'm getting used to how it presents its locations. I was dead on both times. I'm still tinkering with how to carry my PK in my fanny pack while having none of the keys bumped. I found a tin candy container which fits nicely around the speaker and it holds the fanny pack material away from the keyboard. Seems to be working fairly well. I do find it a tadd annoying for the system to repeat that the keyboard is locked every time a key is pressed. It would be nice to be able to silence that warning completely.
