I'm sure you're right Denyece, and I just thought that notetaker was
from FS when it was from Humanware.
 
Robert, GW has one of these GPS options for their notetaker as well
don't they?  Is it also from Sendaro?

        Chip,
        You probably seen something like this  on humanware. Several
years back the company released a GPS for the Braille note empower.

                FYI,
                 
                I don't keep track of these notetakers all that much,
but I could have sworn FS already had one of these in the accessible GPS
area; anyway, here's their announcement.

                        Freedom Scientific Releases New GPS Solution for
the Blind


                        StreetTalk VIP Now Shipping


                        St. Petersburg, Florida - July 27, 2009) -
Freedom Scientific today announced the immediate availability of
StreetTalk(tm) VIP.

                        Running on Freedom Scientific's PAC Mate
Omni(tm) Accessible Pocket PC, StreetTalk VIP offers GPS navigation that
takes into account the unique needs of people with visual impairments.
The application uses technology from the Sendero Group to determine the
best route from point A to point B for either a vehicle or a pedestrian
and presents information to the user with synthesized speech and/or
refreshable braille. 

                        Jonathan Mosen, Freedom Scientific's Vice
President of Blindness Hardware Product Management, says, "StreetTalk
VIP is a powerful tool for exploring your surroundings both virtually
and in real time."

                        Mosen adds that, "During our extensive user
testing process, I've used StreetTalk VIP in New Zealand, Australia, the
United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States. I can sit in my hotel
room and find information about nearby points of interest. Using the
virtual mode, I can explore the surrounding streets while I'm still in
my room, and decide where I want to go before switching on my GPS
receiver and venturing outside. If I'm taking a taxi, I can print out
the route directions for the driver, or simply monitor my PAC Mate Omni
and give him directions. StreetTalk VIP gives me great real time
information, whether I'm traveling on foot or in a vehicle. I love the
independence I have with StreetTalk VIP and would not leave home without
it."

                        StreetTalk VIP is available with maps for the US
and Canada, Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

                        For more information including a full pricing
schedule, visit the StreetTalk VIP Web page
