[icon-discuss] using the Braille+ for Business

I'm using the word processor and planner all the time now for work. But one
thing that puzzles me is this: How do I move to the bottom of a file? I keep
putting text where it doesn't belong, like in the middle of a document. I
seem to be in a place other than I thought I was in, and I'm sure there is a
simple fix for this. When I arrow down line by line I seem to end up at the
beginning of a line, but thinking I'm at the end, I start brailling. Any
help would be appreciated on keeping my text at the end of the file, not in
some other weird place.

Subject: [icon-discuss] Re: GPS on the ICON? And other questions


The majority of Braille note users do not have GPS, and, the reason many of
them will not switch to the Icon or Braille Plus is, the word Braille.  A
Braille note has a refreshable Braille display, and that is important to
some.
However, this brings me to some other questions.  I see mail on this list
about downloading podcasts, RSS feeds, music etc.  I rarely, however, see
mail from anyone who is using the Icon or the Braille Plus for anything
besides well, pleasure.
I would love to hear from someone who is actually using either device to do
real work.  For instance, is anyone using either device to take notes in
meetings?  To keep important appointment information?  As someone who can
make recommendations for clients, it is fairly important to gain some of
this information.  Yes, the Icon and Braille Plus have many unique and
wonderful features, but when it comes to procuring products for clients, I
can't justify purchasing an Icon because the client can download NBC nightly
news!
Therefore, if anyone on this list is using one of these devices either as a
student or a professional, I'd love to hear about it.
You can either write to the list or write me off list.

Well, you might consider it sooner because the sooner that you incorporate
GPS into your product, the sooner current BrailleNote consumers will be
switching.

We have plans for that, but they are down the road.

Are there any plans to develop a GPS System for the Icon/ Braille Plus?
I would gladly give up my BrailleNote with the GPS if it were to become
available. Regards, Claude Everett American by chance, Californian by
